For each four-year term of Council, the City of Niagara Falls sets a new strategic plan with key goals and initiatives that will move the community forward. The Strategic Plan is adopted by Niagara Falls City Council and provides direction to City Staff about areas of focus as the organization works toward achieving its vision.

The current Strategic Plan was approved by Council in 2019. In August 2022, Staff presented a document to Council that provided a final update on 2019-2022 Strategic Priorities and identified initiatives that should continue into the next Council term.

Commencing with a November 18, 2022, Educational Session with the 2022-2026 Council, opportunities have been presented to introduce the new Council to municipal services, previous strategic priorities that are still underway and other key information to prepare the foundation for this Council’s term. This background information/education and public engagement will enable Council to effectively develop its priorities for the term at the strategic planning session.

The planning process for the 2023-2027 Strategic Plan is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2023.

How can you get involved?

The City of Niagara Falls wants to listen and learn from our community about what is important to you. This information will help City Council and administration move forward with a plan that will guide the actions and directions of our community over the next four years.

Input from City residents is essential if the Strategic Plan is going to reflect the priorities and issues of the community. We need to make sure that our priorities match up with what matters the most to our residents, recognizing that our ability to consistently deliver exceptional services to our community depends on spending our time, energy and money on the things that matter most to our residents.

The Strategic Plan Survey is now closed.

Thank you!



This engagement has now concluded. Thank you!
