We will also cover issues including environment and regional parks, regional planning, and air quality and climate change.</p> <p>Metro Vancouver is a partnership of 21 municipalities, one Electoral Area and one Treaty First Nation that collaboratively plans and delivers regional-scale services. Our core services are drinking water, wastewater treatment, and solid waste management. Metro Vancouver also regulates air quality, plans for urban growth, manages a regional parks system, and provides affordable housing. Metro Vancouver is governed by a Board of Directors of elected officials from each local authority.</p> <p>We hope you enjoy this first issue.</p> <p>To subscribe to Metro Vancouver Update <a href="/events/sri-mailing-lists/" target="_blank">click here</a>.</p></div>
