The Importance of Regional Partnerships
Regional cooperation is an important element of improving growth readiness. Municipalities need to consider how regional cooperation initiatives assist a municipality in meeting their legislated responsibilities and contribute to their growth readiness.
Municipalities need to be aware of the benefits involvement in:
- Service sharing agreements and participation in regional planning initiatives;
- The impacts of new industry or growth in a neighbouring municipality; and
- The degree to which regional planning initiatives and service sharing agreements impact growth.
