Strategic Plan


Council has prepared a Strategic Plan to guide the sound management of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s over the next 5 years.

What is a Strategic Plan?  A strategic plan for a municipality is like a roadmap – it shows where the community wants to be in the future (expressed in a Vision Statement) and outlines the paths that will be taken to get there (with Goals and Priority Actions).  It thereby provides a framework for how a municipality can be sustainable, make maximum use of available resources and realise its goals in the long term.

Public Input

Throughout the fall of 2022, vigorous public consultations occurred in relation to the strategic plan. These consultations included in-person meetings, presentations from local groups, key stakeholder sessions, online feedback forums, and a community-wide survey with over 400 responses. This high level of public engagement helps council to work collaboratively and deliver the programming and services that best reflect our residents’ desires. Council thanks all those who took the time to help shape the future of our community by contributing to the budget consultation and strategic planning process this year.
