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.
CRD Board Meeting
On July 13, 2016, the CRD Board gave first and second reading to the Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) bylaw.
The next step in the update process is to hold a public meeting in the early fall for residents to comment on the document. All those interested are encouraged to submit their input. Comments will be summarized and presented to the CRD Board for their consideration in finalizing the bylaw. The public meeting times will be advertised closer to the date.
Following the public meeting, all municipalities within the Capital region will be asked to accept the growth strategy. The bylaw can only be adopted if all the municipalities accept the document.
