Released in June 2010, the formal rollout of Beyond the Guidebook 2010: Implementing a New Culture for Urban Watershed Protection and Restoration in British Columbia will commence at the annual convention of BC elected representatives in September 2010 in Whistler.
In October, the rollout of Beyond the Guidebook 2010 will continue with feature presentations at the Vancouver Island Economic Summit in Nanaimo, the BC Hydro Power Smart Forum in Metro Vancouver, and the Okanagan From Rain to Resource Workshop in Kelowna.
“A decade ago, we realized that changing the way we develop land depends on establishing higher expectations and challenging practitioners to embrace shared responsibility,” states Glen Brown, Executive Director with the Ministry of Community & Rural Development.
"Beyond the Guidebook 2010 is the 'telling of the stories' of how local governments have responded to the challenge; and how a water-centric approach to green infrastructure and community development is taking root in BC."
