Sep 19, 2016

Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District (CRD) Board set a date for the public hearing on the Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) bylaw at its September 14, 2016 meeting.

Date:                Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Location:           CRD Headquarters
                        625 Fisgard Street, Victoria, BC

Time:                3 – 6pm: Open house in the CRD storefront on Centennial Square
6pm: Public hearing in the CRD Board Room

The RGS guides decisions on regional issues such as transportation, population growth and settlement patterns. The public hearing will likely be the last opportunity to comment on the RGS before it is referred to municipalities for acceptance and Board adoption.  In addition to attending the public hearing, comments may be submitted in writing. A comment form will be available online on Monday, October 3, 2016.

Input received through the public hearing process will be presented to the CRD Board for consideration. The CRD Board may direct changes to the RGS bylaw after considering the input received.
