The town is currently working on developing its next strategic plan which will help guide the municipality in all of its decisions-making and provide a vision of what the community can look like in three years.
Part of the plan's purpose is to ensure the town works in coordination towards the same goals, while improving efficiency of daily decision making as guided by the strategy, and creating greater transparency and accountability within the municipality.
The strategic planning process will begin on Oct. 7 at Sunny Cove where town managers, council members, committees of council, and community partners will provide input.
Community partners would include the Rainy River District Social Services Administration Board, Rainy River Future Development Corp., and other public sector partners.
One public session will be held to gather input from the public in regards to the strategic plan.
A review of the draft plan will later take place where the town's senior management, council, and economic development advisory committee will provide input on the planning document.
After the review, council and senior management will hold a final meeting to go over the document and finalize its implementation.
The plan's focus is to establish the town's mission, vision and values, develop objectives, identify its competitive advantage, anticipate coming changes to the landscape of the municipality, implement the plan, and evaluate its performance.
The open house for the plan where it will be shared with the community is to be held when the plan is 99 percent complete.
