The Mayor’s roundtable determined five key priorities – housing, healthcare, recreation, community safety and economic development/downtown revitalization. Over the past six months, Council and senior staff worked together to establish a clear vision for Parksville’s future and on July 3, 2019, Council adopted the 2019-2022 strategic plan. This plan will guide the effective and efficient use of City resources, considering both budgetary and human resource constraints to ensure progress is made.

Going forward, staff will prepare a detailed action plan and the implementation items as approved by Council will be included in 2020 budget deliberations in the fall. This strategic plan will provide direction for the municipality over the next three years and ensure the City’s vision and mission are accomplished. Council will monitor implementation on an ongoing basis and continue to update the community on milestones and project completion.

Thank you to all who participated and for sharing your vision of what the future of Parksville looks like to you!
