About the Growth Management Strategy

Grey County completed it's first growth management strategy in 2008.  This strategy continues to be updated regularly to reflect new growth data as it becomes available, and to respond to growth trends.  

The most recent update to the Growth Management Strategy was completed in 2021. Using this data, we predict Grey County's population will grow steadily at more than 1% over the next 25 years.
