The OCP Project
Council's 2019-2022 Strategic Plan committed to "rewrite the Official Community Plan, forming the basis for local area plans throughout the community (e.g. Quamichan area, Berkey’s Corner area, and Maple Bay Village)."
Rewriting the OCP is a big process: it involves confirming the community's 20-year vision, undertaking significant technical work, such as a Master Transportation Plan and demographic projects, and planning work with community organizations.
We want the plan to be driven by the community. Here is how you can stay informed and get involved:
- Sign up for our "Planning and Development" newsletter
- Connect with the OCP topic on PlaceSpeak where various surveys and discussions will take place (note: you will need to create an account)
- Follow us on Facebook and Twitter
As a start, Council participated in a staff-led workshop on May 15, 2019 to understand what an OCP is, what makes a great one, and to receive an overview of the current Official Community Plan. A copy of the presentation can be found here.
