Strategic Plan

Each year, Yellowhead County Council works to develop a Strategic Plan that focuses on both corporate priorities for the Council and the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO); and operational priorities for the CAO and staff.


Yellowhead County Council attends a Strategic Planning Workshop to set its priorities for the upcoming year. This provides an opportunity to review existing priorities and to see if any new priorities have developed since the previous strategic planning session.

2021 Council Strategic Plan (adopted by Council on November 13, 2020):

The goal of the planning session is for Council and Administration to come away with a clear picture of a long-term vision for the county that balances these goals with the available resources.

Council looks at all the issues and projects that affect Yellowhead County’s residents and businesses by:
•investigating all the challenges around the different topics,
•identifying desired outcomes,
•and developing an action plan (with resources needed to accomplish the specific projects).

Strategic Planning uses goals and objectives to:

  • Guide the County in creating a long-term vision for the future
  • Define values that guide decision-making
  • Chart a course for dealing with changing conditions and community needs
