Clarington is developing a new Strategic Plan to outline its goals and vision for the next four years and wants feedback from the public.

Clarington Mayor Adrian Foster said that with the Draft Strategic Plan now available, the municipality needs comments from the community to ensure that Council gets it “right” before the plan is finalized.

“Input from residents is essential to ensure this plan captures the priorities of the community and that Clarington keeps its reputation as one of the happiest places to live in Canada,” Foster said. “We’re asking residents to get engaged and give their input, either through the online survey or at a public engagement session, to make sure this plan reflects the priorities of our community.”
