The Town of Legal develops and implements Term of Council, and longer term priorities to ensure that programs and services address the changing needs of the community. These priorities are presented in the Town’s Strategic Plan every four years with each new Term of Council.
The 2022-2025 Strategic Plan is the key corporate planning document that defines what Council plans to accomplish over its four-year term. It contains the Term of Council Priorities, approved by Council in 2022.
This Strategic Plan identifies our key strategic priorities over a 4-year period from 2022-2025. The Strategic Plan guides our decision making, and informs the annual Operating and Capital Budgets to allow Council’s priorities to be realized.
