The City wants your input

City seeks input for strategic plan update

SAULT STE. MARIE - Public input is welcomed and encouraged as City Council undertakes to update the existing corporate strategic plan to guide activities for the balance of this term of Council.

The City’s strategic plan is used to make decisions about the allocation of resources to achieve specific goals, guiding the activities of departments reporting to City Council through the Chief Administrative Officer.

The Plan addresses matters which are within the control of the municipality, as opposed to broader community issues beyond its jurisdiction.

The Plan is reviewed and updated in the middle of the Council term.

View the current plan here

Since 2001, the City of Sault Ste. Marie has used a strategic planning process as part of an overall quality improvement program.

A new corporate strategic plan is created every four years (coinciding with the term of Council) to reflect Council’s priorities.

Please visit the City’s website - City Hall - Surveys to submit your feedback.

Change the method of operation at the new light for the hospital on HWY17 north.A chance for a smaller footprint,watched at least 40 forty vehicles come to a stop to let one car out of the Lukenda dr. and turn left.Six were heavy transport and one bus.They were already stopped at the third line for the same thing.Why not send them all to the third line except for emergency vehicles.Wall mart does it, no left turn out of their entrance on to Hwy 17.

How about subsidies for the working poor who can't afford housing?

Oh,Oh; Watch out for Agenda 21!

In before someone complains about potholes on their street.

Subsidies only go so far. It's like panhandling but involving the government. There are education plans available so you can hone your skills and maybe move into a better job.

Continually throwing money at problems will not change anything. I know many people that abuse the system so I think making the "working poor" accountable (like maybe going to night school, online classes, etc.) is the direction that we need to go.

Stop the drug/alcohol/smoking addiction and focus on betterment of yourself and maybe you will just be "working"

The above news item advises "Please visit the City’s website - City Hall - Surveys to submit your feedback." Why are people wasting their time posting suggestions here or is this just cathartic bitching?

Should have a bypass to lessen traffic to the 2nd Line-Great Northern Area.Hwy 17 should run from Beleau Creek to Sixth Line and could easily run right along the Old Perry Rail Bed. There could be 3 entrances to the city,the 2 existing and one down Case Rd area to 3rd Line bringing quicker transportation to the Hospital.
Mike Sanzoztti (I believe it was)had this vision over 20 years ago, but was shot down, by then Mayor Joe Fratazzi.
