Huntsville’s mayor wants the Strategic Plan for this term to focus on making sure we keep acute care services. Scott Aitchison says the Strategic Plan should outline the long-term vision and goals for the town and how those goals will be met.

Aitchison says having a hospital is an essential part of a community and the 2014-2018 plan should reflect that.

Making sure Huntsville is growing in a vibrant community is one way, Aitchison says, will help ensure the town keeps its hospital.

Aitchison says the Strategic Plan will be created to compliment Huntsville’s Official Plan.
