What happens to strategies when they reach their end date?

When a strategy comes to its end date, several things may happen depending on the nature of the strategy, the goals achieved, and the ongoing needs of the community. 

Here's what BMBC does when a strategy has run it's course:

🔎 They look at what went well and what didn't.

✅ If it worked, they might keep it going or create a new plan.

📋 They ask the public for their opinions.

🧾 They share a report on what happened, with key people involved

💷 They may adjust their budget based on what they learned.

💬 They keep everyone informed about what's happening.

Below are some recently expired strategies, which have fed into the current strategy.
