Mission, Vision & Values

Organizations wishing to remain at the forefront of innovation must continually look for opportunities to better deliver services by being:

  • More efficient
  • More effective

We must remain in step with the needs of our community members. Thinking strategically and making a commitment to continuous improvement is essential to our long-term success.

This Corporate Strategic Plan is about:

  • Managing change
  • Taking our service to the next level
  • Making certain we retain our unique community character
  • Capitalizing on the opportunities that will allow the Town to achieve long-term sustainable success

This Plan has been developed with the input of our community members and partners. It is a reflection of the collective priorities of Council and, to this end, articulates clearly where Council and staff will place their efforts over the current term of Council.

Having a Corporate Strategic Plan in place for the Town provides a roadmap for Council Members over their term of office and a guidebook for staff that summarizes strategic actions to assist in aligning resources.

Values are the governing principles that guide our organization on a daily basis. The Town’s values have been developed through collaboration with Council and Staff to work towards the common goal of striving to be the best local government for the residents it serves.

At the Town of The Blue Mountains, we believe in:

PEOPLE- growing and working together

TRUST- provide open and clear communication to the public

RESPECT- for every voice

EXCELLENCE- providing great service to our community

INTEGRITY- honest and fair in all we do

ACCOUNTABILITY- committed and accountable to our community

STEWARDSHIP- caring for the present, committed to the future

We are committed to doing our best and doing the right things for our community. We are constantly looking to improve our services and to enhance our practices of striving towards municipal service excellence.

A Mission Statement is an informal statement that defines the purpose of an organization. It defines an organization’s reason for existing.

The Corporation of the Town of The Blue Mountains will support our diverse community by managing change through innovative leadership, fiscal responsibility and commitment to excellence.

The Vision Statement describes a picture for the future; a sense of what makes the Town of The Blue Mountains special and unique. It represents a significant challenge and will require the Town to make a focused and direct effort to achieve. The Vision should stimulate leadership activity, commitment and participation beyond the Town’s current leadership.
