Armstrong, BC – The City of Armstrong is excited to announce that the draft directions for the Official Community Plan (OCP) have been prepared. Residents are invited to to come out and talk about this important document that will help shape the future of Armstrong.

Two open houses are being held for the public to provide input on the key strategic themes and draft maps for the updated OCP.
Scheduled for April 9thand April 10th, from 5:00 – 7:00 PM both evenings, these interactive open houses will be held at City Hall. We encourage all community members to join us and provide feedback on the draft plan. Residents can drop in at any time during the open house to review and provide comments at the stations set up in City Hall.

“Initial engagement with the community in the fall had over 640 locals, including youth from every school in Armstrong, weigh in at our OCP in a Week events. Feedback provided from the community has helped shape the draft OCP and we are looking forward to bringing the draft plan back to residents for review and feedback.”

– Laurie Cordell, Manager of Planning Services

“Thank you to all the residents who took the time to engage in the first round of the OCP engagements. The results of the first draft directly correlate to the feedback collected during those events. Engaging with the OCP process is a unique opportunity for residents to shape the future of our community. Continued input is invaluable as we start this second phase. I am looking forward to the upcoming open houses on April 9th and 10th and encourage residents to come and get involved in the process.”

– Mayor Joe Cramer

Additionally, the OCP team will be popping up at key locations around the community to talk to people. Pop-Up Events will be at different locations around the community on April 9th & 10th, 2024. See the pop-up event locations at:
