20-Year Strategic Vision

  • Your Mayor and Council are committed to changing the future of Windsor. Since the start of term, we have been working collaboratively to build on the past successes of previous Councils, while also looking ahead to the future. We all want our community to succeed.
  • We are embarking on a 20-Year Strategic Vision, that will provide us with a reasonable picture of where we are headed as a city. It will be the cornerstone for the City’s future for this term of Council and beyond. We can have a bright future, but to get there we need to shape and plan our tomorrows.
