Kearney Strategic Development Plan (2019-2025)

On January 25th, 2019, the Corporation of the Town of Kearney adopted the Kearney Strategic Development Plan. Through the ideas and visions submitted by residents, cottagers, businesses, stakeholders, tourists, and municipal staff, the Community Economic Development Officer Jeremy Chan was able to develop a new Strategic Development Plan that will be used as a guideline for Government, residents, and stakeholders over the next six years.

This new Kearney Strategic Development Plan 2019-2025 replaces the previous 2008 Strategic Economic Development Plan developed by the Economic Development Advisory Committee of Council, and with the aid of student intern Kyla Pratt.
