CRD Regional Parks Strategic Plan Online Engagement

Mar 09, 2022

Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District (CRD) is updating the Regional Parks Strategic Plan and is seeking public feedback through online engagement. The public is encouraged to complete an online survey here. The survey is open until April 4th, 2022.

“The Regional Parks Strategic Plan provides us with a map to guide our approach to managing our regional parks and trails over the next ten years,” said Rebecca Mersereau, CRD Board Vice-Chair and Regional Parks Committee Chair. “We have had discussions with key stakeholders about what they would like to see in the strategic plan and now we would like to hear from members of the public.”

The public is invited to register for one of the online information sessions:

The CRD protects and manages more than 13,300 hectares of natural areas in 32 regional parks and 3 regional trails on southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. The updated Regional Parks Strategic Plan will set the direction for regional parks and trails over the next decade. It will define the vision for our regional park system and set the foundation for how the CRD can consistently move towards achieving its desired outcomes.

On February 9th, the CRD Board accepted draft vision, value, and mission statements and strategic priority areas for stakeholder, First Nations and public input using an applied lens of conservation and protection of biodiversity. The CRD is in the process of gathering input from  First Nations, stakeholders and the public to confirm aspirations for regional parks and trails and identify actions to achieve them.
