Help us achieve the Community Vision!
In 2014, the Town undertook a diverse Community Visioning Project that asked our citizens what they valued most and what they wanted our community to look like in 60 years. Through this innovative and comprehensive community consultation process, a renewed long-range Community Vision for Okotoks was created. The Community Vision will set the direction for Okotoks’ future growth and formed the foundation for the development of the Community Sustainability Plan which was approved by Town Council in the spring of 2016.
The Okotoks Community Sustainability Plan is a significant document that will help guide our community towards a more sustainable and resilient future. The Okotoks Sustainability Plan holds within it the best thinking on how to effect positive and responsible change within municipal organizations. It is a made-in-Okotoks solution, with extensive public consultation, the plan reflects the ideas provided by citizens drawn from every corner of Okotoks.
We can't predict the future but we can hope to respond to it. The Okotoks Community Sustainability Plan takes this to heart; it is a living document that is designed to change and grow with the town over time. Our 'first round' of sustainability implementation will take us to 2019: from there, the Town will reassess its priorities and effects to date to continue charting a way forward.
The plan will ultimately help build quality of life, nurture community, and invest in the elements that will help Okotoks stand the test of time. We hope you'll join us in making this plan a reality, as we guide Okotoks towards a sustainable and resilient future.
