Kawartha Lakes Extends Public Consultation For New Strategic Plan

KAWARTHA LAKES-The consultation period for the Strategic Plan 2024 to 2027 is being extended until February 23 to give the community more time to provide input.

The Strategic Plan is the guiding document for the municipality that defines the community’s vision for the future, and sets the goals and objectives to achieve that vision.

“We are pleased to present our new Strategic Plan, a refreshed roadmap for the municipality, and excited to build off our momentum over the last few years,” commented Brenda Stonehouse, Manager, Strategy and Innovation. “The Strategic Planning process began in August 2023 and was a collaborative effort with connections to Council, staff and the community.”

This extension follows Council’s decision at Regular Council on January 30 to postpone the adoption of the plan until the March 19 Regular Council meeting, allowing for additional feedback from Committees of Council and the public.

Strategic Plan Special Council Meeting – Thursday, February 15 at 7pm
To facilitate further discussion, Council is hosting an evening meeting at 7pm on Thursday, February 15 in Council Chambers (City Hall, 26 Francis Street, Lindsay). The session will begin with staff providing a brief overview of the draft Strategic Plan, followed by time for deputations and correspondence from Committees and the public.

To speak at the Special Council meeting, please submit a request to make a deputation or presentation. Details on the process of speaking before Council are available on the municipal website.

This meeting will include electronic participation through Zoom and will be live-streamed on the City of Kawartha Lakes YouTube Channel.

Public comments extended until Friday, February 23
Additionally, we’re keeping the Jump In, Kawartha Lakes online engagement platform open for comments until February 23 at www.jumpinkawarthalakes.ca/strategicplan2024. Hard copies of the public survey are also available at Kawartha Lakes Service Centres and Libraries.

All feedback received, whether past or new, will be compiled and included in a report for the Regular Council meeting on March 19.

More information and a copy of the Draft Kawartha Lakes Strategic Plan 2024 to 2027 is available at www.kawarthalakes.ca/strategicplan.
