Economic Sustainability

 The City encourages public funding, private investment, business retention and expansion to support continued prosperity in the future. We need to be innovative in our approach and continue to demonstrate our leadership in the knowledge and creative-based economy.


  • Attract public and private investment, support local businesses and provide excellent customer service to demonstrate we are open for business.
  • Be an affordable city for young people, families and retired older adults.
  • Develop partnerships to enhance the economic vitality of the community.

For more information on the Economic Sustainability pillar please visit the Economic Sustainability Committee webpage.
