Following three years of community engagement and participation during the development of the North Okanagan Regional Growth Strategy, the Board of Directors adopted the Regional Growth Strategy Bylaw No. 2500, 2011 on September 21, 2011. 

In 2015 the Board decided to undertake a review of the Strategy to ensure it still reflects the vision and goals of area residents.  During the review process it was identified that new policies specific to: Housing; Active Transportation; Economic Development; Environment- Air quality and Climate Change were required to address new challenges faced by the regions communities.  The Regional Growth Strategy Amendment Bylaw No. 2846, 2019 was Adopted by the Board of Directors on May 20, 2020. The success of this RGS update was contingent upon the commitment and dedication of all those involved.  The Regional District of North Okanagan thanks the Board of Directors, member municipal councils, CAO’s, planning staff, residents and individuals who took the time to provide their feedback and perspective on the new proposed policies. 

The Regional District of North Okanagan will continue to implement the Regional Growth Strategy and work collaboratively on existing processes, services and actively identify opportunities that will contribute to a better quality of life within the North Okanagan.
