Final Report April 14, 2010.

Prepared for Similkameen Valley Planning Society by Glorioso, Moss and Associates.

From the Executive Summary:
"The project  used  a  multiple scenario strategic  planning  approach.  It identified  and assessed  the  Valley‘s  human  and  physical  resources  for achieving  the  above mission,  along  with  key  factors  outside  the Valley likely to impact the mission. Using these external factors, four alternative future  scenarios  were  formulated  for  approximately  the  2011-2040  time period. From them the Valley residents chose the one they considered most likely  to  unfold  (Scenario  B: Gradual Shift).  Although  Valley  residents have limited control over the unfolding of this scenario,  a   well-crafted and skilfully executed strategy can    influence its effects. The    scenario is driven by two societal forces 1) a decreasing local role in public policy decision-making for sustainability; and 2) an increasing demand for places rich in natural and socio-cultural amenities."
