Planning for our Future

We are embarking on a review of our Official Community Plan (OCP) to help prepare the community for a resilient future. The OCP guides land use planning and sets out policies that touch citizen's lives in some way every day.

We will involve the public as we review existing OCP policies within the context of today’s emerging issues, challenges, and trends. At key times throughout the OCP review process, you'll have the opportunity to share your opinions and ideas on the future of our community.

The District is currently seeking members of the public for the OCP Advisory Committee as well as a qualified planning team to lead the project.
