The City of Victoria is currently consulting residents on the 2015 Budget and 2015-2018 Strategic Plan. This plan will shape how the city spends more than $800-million over the next four years. So your input is crucial.
- Do you want more and better bike lanes or less action on active transportation?
- Are you satisfied with the city's current support for affordable housing or should we do more?
- Is the park system and recreational facilities like the Crystal Pool adequate, or can improvements be made and new parks created?
- How much tax are your prepared to pay for high-quality public services and support to community and arts organizations?
These are all part of the draft Strategic Plan and Budget. Your input will shape the path the City takes in the years ahead.
So please get involved in the consultation process. A key date to mark on your calendar is the Town Hall meeting on Monday March 23 at 7:00 pm at Victoria City Hall. This is your chance to share your priorities directly with City Council.
Input can also be provided online at www.Victoria.ca/budget.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to take action on your priorities for building a better city.
