County Strategic Plan

Effective leadership of a municipality starts with developing a shared understanding of the challenges to be faced and the priorities to be pursued. The County of Grande Prairie has developed a Strategic Plan, which will guide all planning, initiatives and operations in the County over the next five years (2020-2025).

The Strategic Plan [PDF - 19 MB] is an overarching framework that identifies goals and strategies that will assist us in achieving our vision and mission.

The Plan will direct the work of the County in a variety of areas such as service delivery, land use planning, infrastructure, citizen well-being, partnerships and economic development. It also includes a new vision for the County: The County of Grande Prairie No. 1.  First in building sustainable, prosperous and safe communities.

Seven themes identify the most important priorities for the County. Each theme is supported by focused objectives to achieve these priorities and the new vision.

The seven themes that will shape the foundation of the County’s work and planning over the next five years include:

1. Effective Transportation Networks

2. Fiscal Sustainability

3. Economic Development

4. Technology Infrastructure

5. Safe Communities

6. Density and Service Standards

7. Governance and Leadership.

Council and administration will regularly monitor the plan, track progress, and report to the public annually. This process will ensure the County can make adjustments to accommodate change, challenges and new opportunities that arise.

The strategic priorities, which are part of the Strategic Plan, are reviewed and frequently updated to ensure it still reflects the needs and views of the County.
