Strategic Plan update
County Council receives the first of a regularly scheduled series of Strategic Plan updates next Council meeting. Introduced in December 2020, the semiannual updates show to which strategic directions staff reports most often align, and are meant to help ensure the County is focusing on the full range of Council’s goals under the Strategic Plan.
Over the past six months, staff reports have most often referenced “Thinks Ahead and Wisely Shapes the Future” (long-term strategic planning) followed by “Works Together” (partnering and collaborating for economic prosperity and community wellbeing) and “Performs and Delivers” (delivering exceptional services).

Community safety zones and automated speed enforcement
County Council will consider technical criteria to identify community safety zones across the County’s road network at the June 23 council meeting. Community safety zones are proposed as a traffic-calming measure on County roads and allow municipalities to issue increased fines within these areas to deter speeding. Under the Ontario Highway Traffic Act, municipalities have the authority to designate parts of a roadway as a community safety zonewhere public safety is of special concern, such as nearschools, community and recreation centres, senior residences and high pedestrian traffic areas.
