The regional district board has identified the following as strategic priorities for the district: rainwater management, First Nations relations, policies for agriculture and aquaculture, the E&N rail corridor and the Mount Washington Integrated Resort Community Plan.
The latter updates a local area plan for the Mount Washington area, which is recognized as a new settlement node under the Regional Growth Strategy.
“We’re working on the doables,” board chair Edwin Grieve said following a recent committee of the whole meeting. “It’s critical to get successes under our belts.”
A sewer implementation strategy, a transit master plan/service review and RGS implementation agreements are among other corporate and operational strategies next on the list.
“We believe we can get a lot of work done,” Grieve said. “It’s going to be a win-win for everybody, especially the taxpayers of the Comox Valley.”
