Official Community Plan

The Official Community Plan (OCP) is the City’s long term vision of the community. It includes objectives and policies that guide planning and land use management decision-making.  The plan includes policies that support positive economic, social, cultural and environmental outcomes including strategies for transportation, housing, sustainability and impacts of climate change.

All lands in the community are provided designations for future development.
