Mayor’s Message

On behalf of the
Town of Nipawin
, I am proud to present Nipawin’s new
Strategic Plan entitled
“A Town for the People
”. Nipawin is a safe,
welcoming,
diverse and optimistic community which provides
employment and business opportunities for future growth and
development. This plan will provide direction to help us ensure that we
enhance and enrich programs and services for the benefit of all our
residen
t
s
, both now and into the future.

This 2017
-
21 Strategic Plan was created in November 2017 using a values
and strength
-
based approach. It was a collaboration between the Council,
Senior Administration and staff of the Town of Nipawin and facilitated by
facilitator, D
on Winn. The document entitled

“A Town for the People”
reflects the values, strategic principles and priorities for the next several
years. Public consultations are being undertaken and will ensure
community involvement is part of its creati
on. This plan will outline our community’s priorities

to

provide a
Plan

for working

toward our goals.

As we move forward with consultation and then implementation, the
community will have the
opportunity to
collaborate and share. The plan will be
dynamic and will be reviewed and updated annua
lly over the next several
years. We
will consistently involve public consultation and input at “open house” forums each year going
forward.

“A Town for the People” means that many hands will be required to pr
ovide input and complete the plan.
Thank
you to thos
e who
have

contribute
d

to

the development of this

plan

and my appreciation to

those who will
continue to work to carry out the plan
as we move
forward.

Sincerely,

Mayor Rennie Harper

Nipawin, A
Town for the People

Early settlers of the
area

dubbed
Nipawin

the “Pearl of the Pines”.
It

is indeed a treasure,
situated on the forest
fringe in the boreal area of nor
theastern Saskatchewan.

Nipawin is a safe, friendly
,

optimistic, diverse
,

and welcoming community that provides employment and
business opportunities for future growth and development.
Nipawin has a solid population of 4400 and offers
a strong retail and service sector
capable of serving the region.

It is nestled between two
lakes: Codette and
Tobin. Boreal forest expands to the North and some of the best agricultural land in Canada surrounds the area.
These conditions have led to Nipawin becoming one of the best all season recreational areas anywhere.

Nipawin
consisten
tly maintains and

updates

its infrastructure. In that regard, 2018 will see
a

new Water
Treatment
Plant

in
full
operation and keeping
with

Nipawin’s tradition of excellent water.

Nipawin offers exceptional facil
ities for citizens and visitors

alike.
A

w
orld
-
class 18
-
hole Evergreen Golf Course
offers an outstanding course and driving range. The
adjacent
Evergreen Centre offers full
-
service restaurant
and catering services
, a loung
e,
several small conference rooms
,

as well as

a large auditorium

allow for
large or
small group functions. Winter activities include many opportunities such as SJHL Hockey at a newly renovated
Centennial Arena, snowmobiling on an extensive system of groomed trails,
and
downhill and cross
-
country
skiing, to
highlight
a few.

Ther
e are opportunities for young

and old alike to enjoy the green spaces of our beautiful Central Park. Central
Park
hosted

the opening of a new outdoor pool, complete with water slide, in July 2017. The Nipawin Skate
Park allows young people to enjoy and e
nhance their biking and boarding skills. Families

and visitors

can enjoy
the

area’s wegional Park which offers daily campsites, spray pool, a swinging bridge
,

and a trout pond. Nipawin’s
living Forestry Museum allows for a stroll

through the past. The m
useum boasts, among other things, a working
antique sawmill, cabooses and an old one
-
room school house and small prairie church. July 1
st

events at the
museum include freshly baked bread from an outdoor clay oven. Considered a tourism destination, Nipawin is
also home to the Premier’s Walleye Cup, Fish for Freedom and Vanity Cup fishing tournaments

and the famous
annual Northern Pike Festi
val
. Houseboat rides on the Saskatchewan River, Nipawin Exhibition and fishing for
the elusive walleye on Tobin Lake (largest pike and walleye records) are only some of the attractions.

Nipawin offers an excellent
K to 12
education system as well as adul
t education through the Cumberland
College. The town has good access to daycare and to a comprehensive array of health care services including a
full complement of physicians house
d

in a new

Medical Clinic and many visiting specialists and services.

Nipawin is well known for its volunteers and its hometown spirit. Our
Town offers
a safe community with
an outstanding quality of life
including access to excellent health services and facilities as well as an
excellent education system.

Nipawin’s Town C
ouncil actively strives to build partnerships and to
develop opportunities for the residents of our community and area.

Perhaps, with any luck, you may have the opportunity to see a
spectacular view of the Norther
n

Lights as they dance across our clear
no
rthern skies.
