Regional Growth Strategy Review

 The 2018-19 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.

A RGS is a local government strategic plan, mandated under the Local Government Act, “to promote human settlement that is socially, economically and environmentally healthy and that makes efficient use of public facilities, land and other resources”. In accordance with the Act, at least once every five years, a regional district that has adopted a RGS must consider a review for possible amendment.

The last RGS Review conducted between 2008 and 2011. Since then a few policy areas have been identified for review includes select policies relating to land use and servicing, housing policies and the criteria for a minor amendment as well as updates to the RGS indicators/targets and required demographic information.

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.
