planning framework graphicResponding to community needs, the CRD Board of Directors identifies priorities and sets the strategic course for the CRD over a four-year period, including an annual check-in and review of Board Priorities. The CRD then creates a Corporate Plan, proposing actions to deliver on the CRD Board’s Priorities, approved plans and ongoing service commitments.

Through annual service and financial planning, the CRD recommends the most sustainable and affordable ways to implement these actions. To ensure the CRD is accountable and appropriately resourced, the CRD Board reviews and approves these plans, determines funding and timing and measures progress through quarterly reports.

2021 Annual Check-In

The CRD Board held their annual check-in on strategic priorities at the May 12, 2021 Board meeting and confirmed that the Strategic Board Priorities identified in the 2019-2022 Corporate Plan remain as important as ever. The CRD will continue to deliver on these initiatives and actions as matters of priority.

The Board also asked the CRD to:

  • Identify options to accelerate actions on Climate Action
  • Review the Land Acquisition Fund rate
  • Explore the options to further contribute to the region’s economic development
