The 2010 OCP Vision
“Whitehorse will be a well planned self-sustaining community that is a leader in energy conservation and innovation that maintains and conserves wilderness spaces for future generations. Whitehorse will continue to strive for a better quality of life that is reflected in its vibrant economy and social life.”
This vision statement has been adopted from the Integrated Community Sustainability Plan and reflects the City's growing commitment to sustainable development.
The OCP Review was divided into three phases:
Phase 1 - Idea Gathering
Phase 2 - Getting Answers to the Big Issues
Phase 3 - Building the Plan
Meetings included open houses, community cafes, workshops, and neighbourhood mapping events. We wish to thank all those who could attend our events and help us plan for the future! The OCP was adopted by City Council in October 2010.
