Regional Growth Strategy Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
 The RGS review is focused on select land use and servicing policies; the criteria for a minor amendment; and a review of select RGS Indicators. As well, the review will include updating required information (i.e. demographics) and general housekeeping amendments.

As of February 2018, the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) is updating the Regional Growth Strategy: Shaping Our Future. The update is intended to improve select policy areas (such as housing affordability) and to update performance measures, demographic information and changes in legislation since the strategy was last updated in 2011. The updated strategy, anticipated to be completed in 2021, will be called Shaping Our Future: 2041.

Shaping Our Future: 2041 will represent the collective vision for how our region will change and grow to accommodate an estimated 193,000 people and 80,598 jobs over the next 20 years.

Join in and help us achieve our goal

Affected local governments, stakeholders such as water and improvement districts, land owners interested in development now or in the future and local residents are invited to learn and provide feedback about what the RDN is proposing to change to harmonize and strengthen select policy areas.
