Corporate Strategic Plan


A corporate strategic plan defines the business of the organization, clarifies its preferred future and identifies strategic priorities. Municipalities whose operations are guided by a strategic plan can be more effective and efficient in using their scarce resources (tax dollars) to better meet present and future needs.

In March 2006, the Town of Creston developed its first Corporate Strategic Plan. Since that time, in order to ensure the Strategic Plan remains current, the Mayor and Council, together with senior staff, have facilitated annual in-house workshop sessions to review the Plan’s content. Within the Plan, Council’s strategic priorities and associated implementation actions are identified.

An implementation plan in the form of Actions is included in the Plan to provide for a more focused approach, and to enable the finalization of the Budget and associated determination of resources. These Actions are multi-year initiatives that will continue to be reviewed by Council on a regular basis to ensure the overall Strategic Plan is implemented.

Creston’s Corporate Strategic Plan is the document that Council uses to provide its direction to senior staff, to guide them in their planning, decision making and budgeting for the Town. The Plan was reached through a collaborative process, and provides clear direction from Council to fulfill its commitment to building a safe, prosperous and friendly town.
