Inspired by Whistler’s natural surroundings and heritage, Whistler has always been visionary and thoughtful about planning.
Building on the resort community's previous five-year vision, Whistler2020 was developed in four phases over three years of consultation and community collaboration before it was adopted in 2005.
- During Phase 1, 'success factors' were identified.
- In Phase 2, five alternative futures were explored and assessed by the community.
- Phase 3 involved crafting a preferred future and developing the draft plan with the involvement of sixteen community task forces.
- In Phase 4, the preferred future was transformed into the Whistler2020 vision, and the 16 strategies were completed with ongoing action-planning by the strategy task forces and the involvement and commitment of a broad spectrum of organizations throughout the community.
