Official Community Plan

An Official Community Plan (OCP) is a "vision" developed by the community to manage the social, economic, environmental and physical future of an area by guiding land- use, development and transportation activities. It articulates the goals and policies of the community on issues such as housing, transportation, parks, green spaces and community facilities.

With community participation a component of the process, an OCP Advisory Committee was formed consisting of citizens at large, representatives for youth, heritage, business, and seniors, and a member of Council. The Committee received community input on various topics including:

  • Transportation, Parks, Recreation, Open Space & Trails
  • Economic Development
  • Food Systems
  • Housing
  • Energy & Climate Change
  • Arts & Culture
  • Growth Management, Agriculture/Agricultural Land Reserve Boundaries

The plan that was crafted outlines the unique context of local concerns. After the comprehensive public and stakeholder consultation process, a visionary and inspirational OCP was created to ensure that decisions related to land use, development, transportation and infrastructure would reflect the community’s desired future for the City.

On June 23, 2014, the Official Community Plan (OCP) was adopted by the City.
