Planning was undertaken by Lions Gate Consulting with input from Sidney’s business community. The plan includes recommendations for initiatives that may be undertaken over the next five-to-seven years to support the success of the local economy. The plan identifies 14 priorities, including employment land preservation, and expansion of non-market/workforce housing, among others. 

The plan is being funded through Canada-BC Safe Restart funds.
