Why review the Urban Growth Strategy?
The District has seen a number of changes in recent years; abandonment of the Summerland Hills Golf Resort plans, new climate action commitments, and updated zoning by-laws are just a few. A revised Urban Growth Strategy will allows us to respond to these changes and make strong choices for appropriate community growth.
What’s at stake?
Housing costs, local jobs, sustainable agriculture, community services and infrastructure, as well as climate action are some of the issues affected by the choices we make about where and how to grow as a community.
Thanks to our history of thoughtful choices about growth and development, we have a vibrant downtown, as well as beautiful natural and agricultural surroundings. With your help, we can continue to make smart decisions about our future, balancing trade-offs and advancing community priorities.
