What are the priorities you would like to see the City Council adopt for 2022?
Each year, the City Council reviews its priorities for the year at its annual Council Retreat which will be scheduled in early 2022. A Council priority is defined as a topic that will receive significant attention during the year. Typically, priorities have a three-year time limit, although some may continue beyond that time period.
The City Council priorities for 2021 are:
- Economic Recovery: focus on COVID-19 impacts and public health, internal improvement and fiscal sustainability, and external recovery
- Housing for Social and Economic Balance: focus on affordable and workforce housing, funding and achievable plans
- Social Justice: commitment to the implementation of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
- Climate Change - Protection and Adaptation: adherence to a strong action plan to fulfill the 2030 agenda for sustainable development
These four priorities were chosen from a list of ten submitted by the Policy and Services Committee to Council members and discussed at their annual retreat on January 30, 2021. This Policy and Services Committee staff report provides background on Council priority setting and other related items.
