The Program is divided into four phases, each with key deliverables. We are currently in the RESEARCH phase which includes undertaking a coastal analysis to develop coastal floodplain maps. When completed, the mapping information will be used to update the RDN's Floodplain Management Bylaw No. 1469, and the RDN's Emergency Services Hazard Risk Assessment Plan as well as future assessments, policies and plans regarding sea level rise (SLR) adaptation.
Sub-Areas 1 & 2 (north & central) will be completed in the spring 2019. Sub-Area 3 (south) is anticipated to be initiated in the fall 2019. For more information on the study area and sea level rise, see the related documents listed below:
