The District of Squamish has released its 2020 Annual Report with information about past year’s accomplishments, goals for 2021-22, audited financial statements, and permissive tax exemptions.
The 54-page report, written in accordance with the Community Charter, is now available online for residents.
“Council is deeply grateful to District staff who never stood down, kept our operations going, moved projects forward, found ways to eliminate red tape to support local business, and developed outdoor programs to keep our citizens, young and old, active,” says Mayor Karen Elliott.
The annual report reflects progress towards Council’s 2019 to 2022 Strategic Plan, under four main pillars: The planet and our environment; Housing affordability and diversity; Economy and local jobs; and Neighbourhood connectivity and public spaces.
“As you read through this annual report you will notice that the scope of our work didn’t diminish although several projects that required deeper engagement were delayed or put on hold due to COVID-19,” says Elliott.
“We remained focused in pursuit of our strategic and operational goals, with much of our work laying the necessary policy foundation and planning work to support our growing community.”
Council will officially accept the report at its Annual General Meeting on June 22 at 1 p.m.
