Our business planning process provides a framework that links Council's vision for the community to budgets and work plans and ensures a consistent strategic direction. It also provides a solid foundation for making decisions regarding programs and services, as well as for allocating resources in a manner consistent with that direction. It helps to ensure that the programs and services offered by the City of Maple Ridge provide value for dollar and are responsive to our citizens and customers, an increasingly challenging task in a growing community in an era of increased downloading from senior governments.
