Background

The Fraser Valley is growing fast and we need an updated strategy that works for everyone. The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) is updating our Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) to reflect new legislation, growing relationships with Indigenous communities, and new challenges facing the region.

Fraser Valley Future 2050 is a high-level policy plan to help guide long-term growth in the region. It covers a wide range of topics, all of which are interconnected, and considers transit, housing, parks, and natural areas, economic development, and environmental issues from a regional perspective.

What's Next?

The results of this phase of engagement are now being reviewed by the Strategic Planning Team. Check back in November to stay informed about the project's progress and learn about the results of the engagement.
