Prince Edward County is on its way to achieving its vision for growth and sustainability over the council term and beyond.
Tuesday night, council approved its Corporate Strategic Plan.
The plan outlines five major priorities including: financial stability, business friendly environment, maintain rural and historic character, a community with employment and affordable housing and sustainable community healthcare.
A draft plan was recently revised to include a larger focus on agriculture and maintaining rural and historic character.
Mayor Robert Quaiff says it’s a big step.

The issue over a sign at a popular beach clothing store in Picton has ended.
The sign for the clothing store Beach Bum was said to be against the Heritage Bylaw.
In April, the decision was deferred so the owner and staff could come up with a solution on size and design.
Last night, Cynthia Nicholls asked council to defer again, however her request was denied.
Changes will need to be made in order to comply with the bylaw.
Finally, Adam Busscher was appointed as a citizen representative on the Community and Economic Development Commission for the council term. Busscher is the owner of Picton’s Home Hardware.
