Saint John Common Council sets priorities for 2021 – 2026

Saint John Common Council has set the priorities for their 2021-2026 term.  

The priorities – GrowGreenBelongMove, and Perform were developed through several workshop settings using input from an online public survey and guided by several municipal strategic plans including Plan SJ, Play SJ, Move SJ, and the Long-term Financial Plan.  

The five priority areas will guide all aspects of municipal activities, policies and procedures, and budgets during the term. 

“These priorities reflect what we hear from the public and what we need to accomplish as a city to grow, prosper and serve our community,” says Mayor Donna Reardon. “This is an exciting time for Saint John, and I am incredibly proud of what our City has to offer. Through our priorities, we have set our sights even higher to ensure that Saint John continues to be the community of choice for residents.” 

City staff are in the process of developing the work plan that will move Council’s priorities forward. The work plan will be presented to Council by City Manager John Collin in the weeks ahead. 

“Saint John has a highly competent, professional and dedicated workforce across all service areas,” adds Reardon. “Together, we can accomplish a lot, and I look forward to seeing the work plans our team will develop to achieve our goals and priorities.”
