OurWinnipeg 2045 Strategic Priorities Action Plan (SPAP) process
The Public Service has undertaken a strategic planning process, described on page 37 of OurWinnipeg 2045. On September 22, 2022 Council adopted the SPAP process to establish a new, recurring strategic planning process an incoming Council can use to prepare its first SPAP following the civic election in October 2022, and subsequent Councils can refine and use it following future civic elections. A formalized strategic planning process will result in better alignment between the civic election cycle, Council strategic planning, and the multi-year balanced budget process.
The timeline includes:
- Phase 1: Process Development: April 2022- October 2022 has occurred in consultation with current Council members and an interdepartmental City advisory committee to integrate recommendations into the proposed strategic planning process.
- Phase 2: Priority Setting with incoming Mayor and Council: November 2022- April 2023
Council members participated in a number of meetings, including two Council retreats (in January and April 2023), to build agreement on city-wide priorities that will guide the 2024-2027 multi-year balanced budget process. The Public Service will work to implement those actions. Council identified five themes for priority actions in the SPAP:
- The Downtown
- A Strong Economy
- A Livable, Safe, Healthy, Happy City
- A Green and Growing City with Sustainable Renewal of Infrastructure
- A City that Works for Residents through Improved Customer Service
- Phase 3: Public Review and Council Approval Process: During April and May 2023, residents reviewed and provided input on Council's priority actions through Community Committee, Executive Policy Committee and Council meetings.
The proposed strategic plan can be found here for review and input.
Implementing the OurWinnipeg plan appropriately is essential if we are to achieve our goals. The development of a Strategic Priorities Action Plan will be guided by an evidence-informed process of identifying key indicators to recognize information, community trends, and issues. This will enable the City to better understand the 'state of the community' when setting priorities, developing budget proposals and service plans, building partnerships and measuring progress in alignment with OurWinnipeg goals, objectives and policy across the City organization.
