Brockton continuing Strategic Action Plan
The Municipality of Brockton is creating a new Strategic Action Plan, to help streamline goals for the next five years and ensure projects are in line with the community’s priorities.
Mayor Chris Peabody says consultations with community groups and residents will begin immediately.
“We will be going out to the public with surveys, consultations, and focus groups to find out what sort of things they want to see to make Brockton a better place,” said Brockton.
Peabody adds that Bill Winegard of Winegard Municipal Consulting will be assisting in the process. The action plan will build on the framework outlined in Brockton’s 2013 strategic plan, Building a Better Brockton but will be updated to reflect the changing economy and local priorities.
“Back in 2013, the people and businesses of Brockton did a lot of excellent work to define what’s important to us. Many of the goals within the four pillars of our strategic plan are as relevant now as they were then; we’re not going to reinvent the wheel,” Chief Administrative Officer, Sonya Watson said. “Brockton still wants to expand the local economy, preserve our heritage, support our cultural and leisure activities, and enable residents to live safe and healthy lives in an affordable community.”
The Municipality plans to consult with all stakeholders over the next few months, presenting recommendations to Council by spring. Council expects to adopt the 2021-2025 Action Plan by this summer.
