The Strathcona Regional District (SRD), in partnership with Dillon Consulting Limited, is undertaking the development of an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan for Electoral Area C (Discovery Islands-Mainland Inlets).
What is an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan?
An Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) is a long-term plan developed in consultation with community members to identify a shared vision for sustainability. It will help us collectively plan for our present needs while ensuring that the needs of future generations are not compromised. The plan will guide long-term decision making, expressing our values and sustainability goals.
Why Do We Need It?
To achieve responsible growth, the SRD requires a roadmap for guiding development in a sustainable manner and assuring that Electoral Area C becomes a more resilient, sustainable, and cohesive community. The plan will focus on maintaining our community’s social, economic, cultural and environmental values.
Electoral Area C does not have an overarching vision or plan. The development and implementation of this ICSP will provide an over-arching sustainability-based vision for the entire area.
