City Council Sets Course for Next Three Years

Kamloops, B.C. – City of Kamloops City Council and Administration gathered this past weekend at the Interior Savings Centre to lay the foundation for the 2012 - 2014 Council Strategic Plan. The day and half planning session included discussion and debate on goals and objectives that will enhance the City's position as a favoured location to live and do business.

The five strategic goals categorized under Economy, Livability, Environment, Governance and Infrastructure will continue from the previous plan, however, new initiatives under each will be developed over the next few weeks.

"Council spent a solid day and half working as a group to consider the needs of Kamloops and our role in fostering a strong community that offers a great quality of life. The city has faired very well with past strategies such as the Tournament Capital Program. Our objective is to build on these successes," states Mayor Peter Milobar.

The Council strategy session is part of a multi-phase planning exercise that includes a public presentation and final Council approval. Once City Council approves the plan, City administration will develop a corporate strategic plan to action Council's vision and strategic goals.
