The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) Board (the "Board"), created a new Strategic Plan in 2019, for their term of office. Aligning projects with an SCRD Strategic Plan and other planning documents, and keeping in mind the current economic conditions and challenges faced by the Sunshine Coast community, the Board endeavours to keep services affordable and taxes as low as possible in review of the budget. The Budget process for 2020 began with Pre-Budget discussions on November 28, where the Board had an opportunity to review proposed projects. 2020 Round 1 Budget was earlier this year held on December 4, 5 and 6, 2019 Community Partners and Stakeholders presented 2020 Budget requests and SCRD Staff presented budget proposals for Board consideration. The final round of budget deliberations, 2020 Round 2 Budget, will be held on February 10 and 11, 2020. As the SCRD moves toward changing the fiscal year to a January to December budget the process will continue to shift over the next couple of years. Adoption of the 2020 Budget is scheduled for February 27, 2020.
We ask that you share your thoughts on how we can take the necessary steps to continue to build on a stronger and more prosperous Sunshine Coast community.
