OCP Review - Phase 1

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The OCP Review began in early 2009 and kicked off with several workshops in each of the City's neighbourhoods. The workshops were well attended and we received a huge amount of public input on how their neighbourhoods should grow and change. We also held individual meetings with the various stakeholder groups in the City. Phase 1 culminated in an Open House whereby City staff presented the neighbourhood maps developed by the residents. In total over 300 people attended the Phase 1 meetings!

Phase 1 Results

All ideas for changes to the 2002 OCP that were given at neighbourhood workshops and stakeholder interviews were compiled into a master list. Download the List of OCP-level new ideas. This list was used to generate the list of planning issues that was tackled in Phase 2.

Stakeholder Workshops

In February 2009, we held several individual meetings with various stakeholder groups. A broad spectrum of interests were represented, including: youth advocacy; disability advocacy; environmental conservation; business and commerce; art, heritage and culture; and recreation.

Neighbourhood Workshops

In the right-hand column are base maps that were used at the neighbourhood workshops in January and February 2009. These maps show the current (2002) land use designations overlain on a 2006 aerial image. In the middle column are maps that show the input gathered from residents at each workshop. The final column contains additional resident input that was gathered on each map.

The purpose of these maps is to gather input for the new Official Community Plan (OCP). These maps only represent the input we heard, and do not value one piece of input more highly than any other. They do not represent a future plan, and are intended for discussion purposes only. All maps are PDF format and range from 1 to 3 megabytes in size.
