Targets & Indicators Project

RGS Monitoring Monitoring progress helps us understand if our actions are having the results we intended. Establishing a monitoring program and preparing annual reports on Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) implementation and progress is consistent with the RDN commitment be accountable to residents and meets the requirements of the Local Government Act.

Targets & Indicators Project

On January 28, 2014 the RDN Board directed staff to proceed with a project to select indicators and set targets to monitor the RGS. This project is a key part of a Monitoring Program for the RGS. After consultation with key stakeholders and the public, the Regional Board on January 27, 2015 approved the final list of indicators and targets.
