Regional Plan Draft 2

Consultation on Draft 2 closed July 19th.

On May 15, 2013 the Community Design Advisory Committee agreed to send the draft revised Regional Plan out for public consultation. The draft was developed as part of the Plan's first five-year review.

A few notes on Draft 2:

  • The Plan is presented below both as a single document and in individual chapters, 1 through 9.
  • The Plan is still a draft. That means it will likely undergo some additional changes before being presented to Regional Council this fall.
  • For quick reference, a series of one-page fact sheets are available to explain the main changes.
