Water-Centric Planning in Oliver
The Town of Oliver's journey along the soft path to water sustainability provides an on-the-ground case study for implementation of a water-centric approach to land use and water planning. A desired outcome in building on case study experience is that a chain of events will be triggered that will ultimately result in implementation of well-grounded sustainability policies and practices that can be adapted province-wide.
The first water-centric building block is the Town of Oliver case study experience. On March 30, 2006 a working session was held in Oliver. The event was community-based and was informed by outside expertise and provincial program people.
