The Vaughan Vision 2020 strategic plan sets out a vision and direction for the City over the next decade and beyond. Planning for the future through the strategic plan will position the City to deal with the many pressing issues impacting the organization such as community safety, access to health facilities, environment, traffic congestion and issues related to growth and the quality of municipal services.

The next 25 years will see Vaughan beginning the transition from a growing suburban municipality to a fully urban space. This type of transition will require long-term thinking about how best to accommodate and make the most of new opportunities.
