January 28, 2020

The City officially kicked off Reframe 2020 on Jan. 21 with two staff events that focused on sharing ideas, identifying organizational strengths and opportunities, and looking for ways to continue providing quality services to citizens of Spruce Grove.

Reframe 2020 is the City’s response to current economic realities, including budgetary challenges and a slowed growth rate, while identifying opportunities to change and adapt as Spruce Grove transitions to a mid-sized city.

“This is an opportunity for us to reflect on what we do well, what we need to do better, and what we need to change,” said City Manager Simon Farbrother. “We are in a period of transition and we need to own and address it as an organization.”

City staff will play a key role in the Reframe 2020 process as they collaborate and identify ways to work more efficiently and effectively.

“This is the start of our journey to develop and share ideas that will contribute to building a great city for our residents,” said Farbrother. “It’s an exciting time for our organization and for the future of our community.”
