City of Langley Adopts the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan


Langley, British Columbia, – Langley City Council has adopted the 2017-2021 Strategic Plan at the Regular Council Meeting held on June 12, 2017.

The role of the Strategic Plan is to guide all planning processes within the City of Langley over the next five years based on three fundamental elements:  our vision – “The Place to Be”, our Mission – “A vibrant, healthy and safe community”, and our core values – the beliefs or principles that guide City Council and staff.  The Strategic Plan is the result of a series of Council and staff workshops as well as input from the citizens of the community.

Mayor Ted Schaffer stated that “Langley City continues to be a thriving community as we move into 2017 and beyond.  Development, arts and culture, and recreational opportunities are all flourishing. Ongoing improvements to transportation and infrastructure are evident throughout the City, as are key environmental initiatives. Council and Staff are working diligently on several fronts to build a strong sense of community that provides a high quality of life where people choose to live, work and prosper.”

Our new Strategic Plan will focus on seven result areas where we believe changes and improvements can be made to enhance the livability of our community for all citizens. Those areas are: improving our infrastructure; enhancing the quality of life in our City; communicating with our residents more effectively; revitalizing our downtown core; protecting, preserving, restoring, sustaining, and enhancing our environment; ensuring our citizens’ safety and security; and investing in organizational development. Working within these result areas, 44 specific initiatives have been identified which will guide our annual budgets and work plans over the next five years as we continue to position ourselves as “The Place to Be”.
