Current Opportunities

Downtown Streetscape Master Plan

In October 2022, Council adopted the Downtown Streetscape Master Plan. The plan outlines design concepts, recommended materials, proposed phasing and cost estimates and was one of the top priorities identified in the Downtown Development Plan

As part of the 2024 Capital Budget discussions, Council decided to pull the Streetscape Redevelopment out of the budget until they had a better idea of the overall tax levy increase. Council also directed staff to get feedback from the public about how they would like to see the project move forward. 

Provide your input

The survey will close March 3 to allow time for the results to be compiled and brought back to the March 21, 2024 Council meeting. The staff report will outline options for reducing the scope and cost of the project as well as the feedback received through consultation with the public. 

Previous Opportunities

Strategic Plan Priorities

On March 30, Council held a Strategic Plan Realignment Workshop to review the objectives and actions within the current Strategic Plan and understand what has been accomplished to date. They discussed and identified new actions that the City should undertake before identify priority actions they want to address over this term of Council. The public was then invited to provide input about these priorities between May 1-22. 

You can view the summary of the consultation results that were shared with Council. At their June 15 meeting, Council approved in principle the updated list of priority actions. Staff will now use this list to bring forward specific initiatives for direction from Council or through the budget process for implementation.  

Asset Management Survey - Part 2

The City asked for input from the public to help inform the development of our long-term asset management plan. In November 2022, we asked for feedback about our core assets and the most recent consultation was looking for input about our non-core assets (e.g., administrative and recreational facilities). A presentation, sharing the results of the consultation, is on the Sept. 21, 2023 Council meeting agenda.  

Multi-Year Accessibility Plan

Under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act 2005 (AODA), municipalities are required to establish, implement, maintain and document a multi-year accessibility plan that outlines our strategy to prevent and remove barriers for persons living with disabilities in our community. A draft of the 2023-2027 Multi-Year Accessibility Plan was available for review and comment from the public before it was approved by Council on May 18, 2023.  

What's on Woodstock

Recently, we asked you for feedback about the What's on Woodstock magazine. To show our appreciation for your input, we had three prizes available for those who shared their feedback. Prize winners will be notified directly.
