Have your say on long-term vision of Oakville


Published March 8, 2023 at 10:08 am

Oakville residents are being asked to help the town set a “path for success” for its future.

The Town of Oakville is developing a long-term vision and is encouraging the community to share what actions they believe Town Council should take over the next four years to help ensure Oakville “continues” to be one of the best places to live.

Starting the week of March 20, 2023, residents may receive a call from Deloitte Canada, on behalf of the town, to participate in a 10-12 minute phone survey.

The town is also inviting the community to participate in an online survey opening on March 20 through to April 10 and take part in a community open house taking place in each of Oakville’s seven wards in late March, early April.

“Oakville continues to grow and thrive because of the passionate people who live here,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “I hope to see our community come together at the upcoming open house opportunities to share what’s envisioned for our future and help set priorities.

“By working together, I know we’ll be able to set a path for success, not only for the next four years, but for generations to come.”

The community feedback will be reflected in the Council Strategic Plan so that it continues to be forward thinking and sets the direction for the Oakville community. Engagement will also help identify areas of focus that will help shape the first draft of the 2023-2026 Business Plan.

A draft Council Strategic Plan and 2023-2026 Business Plan will be ready in June with a final report for Council to review in July.

“I encourage everyone from all walks of life to participate in the engagement opportunities offered from now until June,” said CAO Jane Clohecy.

“Council and staff are here to listen and ensure that the Council Strategic Plan and the 2023-2026 Business Plan reflects what matters most to our community from now into the future.”
