City of Red Deer Strategic Direction

2012 - 2014 City of Red Deer Strategic Direction
The City of Red Deer is working on the 2012 – 2014 Strategic Plan. The City’s Strategic Plan guides us along a path and provides focus and purpose to all that we do. It is our most important plan as it shapes our organization, the municipal programs and services we provide to the citizens of Red Deer.

Every three years following the municipal elections work on renewing the strategic plan begins; however, strategic planning is an ongoing activity through monitoring, reporting and budgeting. Strategic planning is used to determine long-term vision and goals, and to develop the action plan to achieve those goals. It is also a good method for the municipality to communicate strategic priorities to staff and citizens. This provides direction for internal departments to align their service delivery with these priorities.

The Strategic Plan is the document – strategic planning is a process and something we as an organization will continue to work on as we move forward.

The 2012-2014Strategic Direction was presented and approved by Council on August 8, 2011. Now that the strategic direction is approved, administration will respond by showing how the organization plans to deliver upon Council’s direction – this is the strategic implementation. It consists of elements such as charters for each theme area, projects, policy, work plans and budgets. These form a reasonable interpretation of the strategic direction set by Council.
