Mayor’s 6th annual Oakville Status Report
Planning now for Oakville’s future
Mayor Rob Burton will deliver his sixth annual Oakville Status Report on October 9 in Council Chambers beginning at 6 p.m. The 2012 version of the speech is forward looking, touching on Council’s long term plans towards realizing the town’s vision of making Oakville the most livable town in Canada.
"Just as individuals and businesses must plan for the future, towns must also plan ahead,” Mayor Burton said. “We have the plans in place that will ensure our town grows, but does so in way that’s smart and sustainable; we are taking concrete steps to protect both our historic heritage and our environment. We are investing in our town to make it an even more enjoyable place to live, work, raise a family and retire.”
The Mayor’s Status Report will speak to the town's Sustainable Community Framework, particularly the recently launched Vision 2057 as a comprehensive road map that will guide the town out to its bicentennial in the same year; major milestones as part of Vision 2057 include making progress on the town’s development charges study, new zoning by-law, updating the town’s Parks, Recreation and Library Facilities Master Plan and the town’s Transportation Master Plan.
The Mayor will also speak to Oakville’s strong and stable financial position, as well as the importance of enhancing the town’s programs and services that residents value most, while getting value for taxpayer dollars.
“By dreaming together, working together and planning together, we can make Oakville Canada’s most livable town. The people of Oakville, today and tomorrow, deserve no less,” Mayor Burton said.
