Community of Inverness Growth Strategy Portal

The Growth Management Strategy will chart the course of actions that will enhance livability, ensure new growth supports high quality of life, and make financial sense in the long-term. The focus is on how to create overall benefit for current and future residents, acknowledging that recent local prosperity has not always been enjoyed equally among the community. The Strategy will identify how growth and new investment should be managed in order to minimize disturbances, like noise or water supply shortages, and maximize real benefits, like sidewalks or upgrades to parks. In other words, we know where the community wants to go, and the Growth Management Strategy will help us figure out the steps to get there.
