The Regional Growth Strategy

The CVRD Regional Growth Strategy was adopted in 2011 to manage growth in the Comox Valley. It includes eight goal areas to address Housing, Ecosystems, Natural Areas and Parks, Local Economic Development, Transportation, Infrastructure, Food Systems, Public Health and Safety, and Climate Change. Each of the eight goal areas include a series of objectives, policies and measurable targets, which are monitored and reported on in a published annual report each year, as required by the Local Government Act.  The official community plans of the electoral areas and the member municipalities (City of Courtenay, Town of Comox and Village of Cumberland) must all comply with the Regional Growth Strategy.
