CRD Board Approves Priorities for their 2023 – 2026 Term

Mar 08, 2023

Victoria, BC– Today, the Capital Regional District (CRD) Board approved their priorities and affirmed their commitment to climate action and reconciliation.

“Over the past few months, we have been working together to understand each municipality and electoral area’s priorities that will guide our work over the four-year term,” said CRD Board Chair Colin Plant. “Our priorities in transportation, housing, climate action & environment, First Nations and governance, reflect our shared vision and highlight what we want to accomplish as a Board.”

The CRD Board undertakes a planning process at the outset of each new term of office. The objective of the planning process is for the Board to confirm the Board vision and set strategic priorities to focus organizational initiatives.

“The CRD is already doing extensive work for the region,” added Plant. “Through the CRD’s established service planning and budget processes, we will determine how best to fund our priorities and initiatives and continue to focus on affordability and delivering value to taxpayers.”

Upon approval of the Board Priorities, the CRD develops an accompanying Corporate Plan. The Corporate Plan and divisional service plans align CRD services, programs and activities with Board Priorities and will drive organizational performance and service delivery outcomes. The Board will consider the Corporate Plan for approval in April 2023. The Board approves divisional service plans annually in the fall.

Governed by a 24-member Board of Directors, the CRD works collaboratively with First Nations and all levels of government to enable sustainable growth, foster community well-being, and develop cost-effective infrastructure while continuing to provide core services to residents throughout the region.
