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 the SRD with the assistance of Dillon Consulting collectively plan for the present needs of Electoral Area C while ensuring that the needs of future generations are not compromised. The plan will guide long-term decision making, expressing your 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 the 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 Electoral Area C.
How can you be involved?
To date the SRD has generated interest in the ICSP process through an initial high-level survey and an information booth at the Quadra Island Farmers Market.
Electoral Area C residents are invited to drop by the SRD’s ICSP interactive open house on Wednesday November 6th, from 6 pm – 8:30 pm at the Quadra Elementary School.
Help make the future of Electoral Area C more sustainable by providing input into a shared vision, establishing community principles and values, and identifying key goals and priorities. Your input is key to the success of this plan!
