The Regional District of Central Okanagan adopted Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) Bylaw No. 1336 on June 23, 2014. The strategy was developed in collaboration with the region’s member municipalities, First Nations, various agencies, the public, and stakeholders.
The RGS is a long-range planning tool to help regional districts and local governments plan the future of their communities together and deal with regional issues and decisions that cross local political boundaries. The strategy is a general guide for how the region will grow, change and develop over a twenty-year time horizon; providing direction for the management of future growth with subsequent policies and actions for implementation.
Being accountable for progress towards achieving the goals of the Regional Growth Strategy requires a commitment to implementation which the Regional District and its partners have demonstrated through various regional services, actions, and projects.
The RDCO has a statutory obligation under Local Government Act to consider, at least once every five years, whether the RGS should be reviewed for possible amendment and to provide opportunity for input into the need for review. This requirement provides an opportunity for the Regional District to periodically assess the RGS and gather feedback to determine if a review of the Regional Growth Strategy is warranted.
You are welcome provide comments and express an opinion by mail or email whether there is a need for a review of the RGS.
