Useful gov’t website on regional growth strategies

Regional growth strategies are actually created within provincial legislation that was put in place under the Gordon Campbell administration of the BC Provincial Government. This official website provides basic information from that perspective.

It starts like this…A regional growth strategy (RGS) is a local government strategic plan to promote human settlement that is social, economic and environmentally healthy and that makes efficient use of public facilities, land and other resources. An RGS gives long range planning direction for regional district and municipal official community plans (OCPs) and provides a basis for decisions regarding implementation of provincial programs in the area. There are currently ten regional districts within the three higher growth areas of the province with completed regional growth strategies.
