City council has confirmed its three-year strategic plan for Campbell River.

Mayor Andy Adams says the plan “identifies the critical community issues council intends to address. It outlines how we’re moving forward with a number of important initiatives. The strategic plan also considers long-term projects to advance as Campbell River grows and develops.”

It consists of six pillars, with three focus areas under each:

Management and Governance – community input, good governance, and infrastructure. 

Livability – safety, recreation and culture, and waterfront.

Economic Health – economic development, business vitality, and tourism.

Relationships – most vulnerable, first nations, and regional health.

Two new pillars, Growth Management and Environment, have been introduced.

The first will focus on housing, future growth areas, and vision, while climate change, natural asset management, and solid waste falls under the latter of the two.

Objectives with complementary projects and initiatives are mentioned in the document, along with other city plans, strategies, and bylaws that guide the work outlined in the plan.

Regular operations and maintenance are not reflected in the strategic plan.
