Beyond the Guidebook 2010 provides local government with 'how to' guidance for developing outcome-oriented urban watershed plans

Province's policy framework provides clear direction for aligning local actions with provincial and regional goals

Beyond the Guidebook 2010 provides local governments with ‘how to’ guidance for developing outcome-oriented urban watershed plans. The formal rollout commenced on September 27th at the 2010 annual convention of local governments, held in Whistler. Glen Brown and Ray Fung represented the provincial and local government perspectives, respectively, when delivering an integrated presentation to a packed study session (180 attendees).

“We will use this coming together of BC’s local leaders to share and learn from each other’s experiences, and gain ideas to move our communities forward,” stated Harry Nice, President of the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM). He described the 2010 convention as offering “an opportunity to take our goals, and forge them into tangible outcomes”.

The next venue in the rollout is on October 5th at the Green Link 2010 Conference. Then, in the last week of October, three regional events provide high-profile platforms for continuing the rollout of Beyond the Guidebook 2010.
