The Town’s Strategic Plan guides us along a path and provides focus and purpose to all that we do. It is our most important municipal plan as it shapes our organization, the municipal programs and services we provide to the citizens of Hinton.
Every four 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.
