The Strathcona Regional District celebrates its 10-year anniversary while keeping focus on the future

The Strathcona Regional District (SRD) was officially formed on Feb. 15, 2008, when the then-Comox Strathcona Regional District was split into the SRD and the Comox Valley Regional District. Over the last 10 years, the organization has grown and developed, while strengthening programs and expanding the list of services offered.

“2018 marks an exciting year for the SRD. Not only has the organization reached its 10-year anniversary, but it is entering an exciting growth phase. We have recently been awarded several large grants to drive strategic Board priorities, which will provide benefits across the region. An example would be the recent funding announcement for the Connected Coast project to improve broadband infrastructure in the region,” says SRD Board Chair Michele Babchuk. “We are very excited about the milestone, and the direction in which the SRD is heading.”

The SRD staff will be working with the board to plan events which will celebrate the achievement as well as showcase the region.

“I think we have a lot to celebrate and a lot to be proud of in the Strathcona Regional District. We are a small but mighty organization and as a team, we are excited about the vision of the Board and eager to get to work on delivering the services and programs which will help this region mature and develop,” says SRD CAO David Leitch.
