City Council approved Owen Sound's Strategic Plan Refresh (2021-2023) on April 19, 2021.  

The current Strategic Plan Refresh built off the previous Strategic Plan, maintaining the same vision, mission, values, and pillars as they continue to resonant with the community and staff.  Councillors, public members of each standing Committee, and Senior staff with the City contributed ideas that helped define the Strategic Plan’s overall direction, objectives, and key priorities.
