Title: Corporate Planning - Public Submissions - Goodwin
Presenter: Diane Goodwin
Department: Corporate Services
This topic relates to all three of the City’s strategic vision elements contained in Council’s Strategic Plan

Request for Decision Summary
Residents, community groups and organizations have an opportunity to make a submission to the City of Spruce Grove for consideration in the 2018–2020 Corporate Plan. This is part of an annual process where the City welcomes public input into the corporate planning and fiscal planning process.
Proposed Motion
That the public submissions, to be considered in preparation for the development of the 2018-2020 Corporate Plan, be received as information.
 
Background/Analysis
The following written submissions were received and a representative will be presenting at this meeting:  
 
  • Needs Assessment for the Spruce Grove Public Library - Funding Request
  • Spruce Grove Beach Volleyball League Proposal - Funding Request
 The following written submissions were received but will not be presented at this meeting:
 
  • Tri-Community Adult Learning Association - Funding Request
  • Night Owls Citizens on Patrol Society - Funding Request

Members of the public who did not submit a written submission and are in attendance at the meeting have the opportunity to make a presentation to Committee after the final presentation from written submissions is made.
Options/Alternatives
Not applicable.
Consultation/Engagement
The opportunity to make a submission for consideration in the corporate plan was advertised in the newspaper, the local radio station, through social media, on the reader boards and the City's website.
Implementation/Communication
All corporate plan submissions will be considered and prioritized as part of the City’s annual corporate planning process, which begins in March and continues until September.

All public submissions, along with Administration’s recommendations, will be presented to Council in November for final review and approval. The end result will be the 2018–2020 Corporate Plan, which is the City’s principal guiding document for governance, community development and service delivery and outlines our plans and projects for the next three years.

Once Spruce Grove City Council has formally adopted the 2018–2020 Corporate Plan, residents, groups and organizations who made a submission will be advised in writing of the status of their request.
Impacts
Public submissions to the corporate plan may contribute to a strategic goal depending on the content of the submission.
