CRD Board Endorses Regional Trails Management Plan

Nov 10, 2016

Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District Board has endorsed the Regional Trails Management Plan. The plan went through an extensive planning and public engagement process beginning in April 2014. It was considered by the CRD’s Regional Parks Committee in October 2016.

The management plan will guide decision-making, priority setting, and budget planning for the next decade and beyond for the Galloping Goose Regional Trail, the Lochside Regional Trail and the E&N Rail Trail - Humpback Connector, as well as future regional trails.  

The CRD thanks residents of the region, First Nation governments, interest groups and government agencies for their input into developing the management plan. This shared-use trail system provides nearly 100 kms of non-motorized recreation and active transportation opportunities. The regional trails network facilitates active, healthy lifestyles for people of all ages and abilities.

Celebrating 50 years! The CRD delivers regional, sub-regional and local services to 13 municipalities and three electoral areas on southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Governed by a 24 member Board of Directors, the CRD works collaboratively with First Nations and all levels of government to enable sustainable growth, enhance community well-being, and develop cost-effective infrastructure while continuing to provide core services to residents throughout the region.
