Planning for Our Future
The Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) is a vision for the future of the capital region, guiding decisions on regional issues such as transportation, population growth and settlement patterns. The RGS promotes the long term livability of the region by enhancing social, economic and environmental performance. The existing RGS is currently being updated as part of a 5-year review process.
Provincial legislation requires that all municipalities in the CRD accept the RGS before it can be adopted as bylaw. The legislation sets out a process for resolving disputes if unanimous agreement is not possible. The deadline for municipal acceptance or rejection of the RGS was on February 2, 2017.
The CRD Board was to consider municipal positions and direct next steps in the process at its February 8, 2017 meeting. Due to poor weather, consideration of this item was postponed. A new date will be posted once a meeting is scheduled.
