Through the Town of Newmarket's 2014 Community Survey, the Mayor and Members of Newmarket Council received community feedback on what the Town's priorities should be. As a result of that information, Council's 2014 to 2018 strategic priorities are:

  • Economic Development and Jobs
  • Enhanced Recreational Opportunities
  • Community Engagement
  • Traffic Safety and Mitigation
  • Efficiency and Financial Management
Each of those key theme areas has a number of priorities tied to it - 14 in total. From those priorities, the Town of Newmarket has selected five to focus on in the 207 Budget. They are: 
  1. Revitalizing our community centre lands and addressing downtown parking: This priority supports Council's theme of Economic Development and Jobs, and will look to include a long-term downtown parking strategy, a way-finding program for downtown and a development strategy for Community Centre Lands.

  2. Creating a strategy for vibrant and livable corridors along Davis Drive and Yonge Street: This priority also support's Council's theme of Economic Development and Jobs and will look to support the completion of vivaNext construction along Davis Drive and Yonge Street, include the construction of Tom Taylor Trail connections at Davis Drive, include the refinement and completion of the preliminary financing strategy to address future growth servicing needs and include the development of a plan to acquire properties for more public places and breathing spaces.

  3. Supporting community and neighbourhood projects: This priority supports Council's theme of Enhanced Recreational Opportunities and includes the implementation of recommendations of the Recreation Playbook - Recreation & Culture's 10-year master plan.

  4. Ensuring safe streets: This priority supports Council's theme of Traffic Safety and Mitigation by implementing engineering, education and enforcement initiatives through the Traffic Mitigation Strategy (Traffic Calming Policy, visibility improvements, signage).

  5. Organization Ready 2020: Investing in Newmarket now for the future
