Here's a few questions to consider:

Is it possible that the problem isn’t poor application by Council/Staff, but that the vision is unwieldy?

Were citizens involved in the crafting of this vision? If yes, to what extent? If no, is it safe to say that maybe if there had been citizen involvement, there may have been a broad buy-in, and therefore it might have had a better chance at being used at various levels of executing strategy?

Who was the consultant behind the effort?

How much did the City pay for this person’s contributions?

When helping to craft this statement, were the then-Councillors' hearts in it?

How much deliberation was involved in the process? (How long did it take to come up with the vision?)

How close is Hamilton’s declared vision to Oakville’s: 'To be the most livable town in Canada.’ And what did they pay to come up with theirs?
