Kamloops council has adopted a strategy to implement the recommendations from the Kam Plan.
Community Planning Manager, Jason Locke says, the city has adopted 23 different barometers, including relevancy, set targets for things like reduced energy use, and the availability of data.
Locke says its important to keep ongoing track of progress.
“Once you’ve implemented the plan, you need to monitor and evaluate the progress and performance. How are we doing in terms of achieving what we said we’re going to do? Plans are nothing without implementation. We create a plan, and the goal of the plan isn’t just to sit on the shelf and collect dust. Implementation involves taking actions to ensure the plan achieves its goals.”
The KamPlan governs the city’s growth over the next 20 years.
