District of Squamish releases 2020 Annual Report

The District of Squamish has published its 2020 Annual Report complete with 2020 goals and accomplishments, goals for 2021-22, audited financial statements and permissive tax exemptions, and written in accordance with the Community Charter. The 54-page report is now online at squamish.ca/budget-financial-statements-and-annual-reports.

"I want to acknowledge the immense effort, commitment, and genuine care that our citizens, local businesses, non-profit sector, arts and culture champions, and government partners put in to help see us through the pandemic," says District of Squamish Mayor Karen Elliott. "Council is also deeply grateful to District staff who never stood down, kept our operations going, moved projects forward, found ways to eliminate red tape to support local business, and developed outdoor programs to keep our citizens, young and old, active."

The Annual Report reflects progress towards Council’s 2019 to 2022 Strategic Plan, which sets out realistic yet ambitious goals to address Squamish’s biggest opportunities and challenges under four main pillars: The planet and our environment; Housing affordability and diversity; Economy and local jobs; and Neighbourhood connectivity and public spaces. 

"As you read through this annual report you will notice that the scope of our work didn’t diminish although several projects that required deeper engagement were delayed or put on hold due to COVID-19," continues Elliott. "We remained focused in pursuit of our strategic and operational goals, with much of our work laying the necessary policy foundation and planning work to support our growing community."

District of Squamish Council will officially accept the annual report at its Annual General Meeting on June 22 at 1 p.m. For more information and to view the 2020 Annual Report visit squamish.ca/budget-financial-statements-and-annual-reports.
