Official Community Plan

Public engagement session

Official Community Plan 2030

The City of Quesnel is in the process of updating the Official Community Plan (OCP)! This is an exciting time and the City wants to hear your thoughts and ideas on how the City will evolve as it looks to the future.

The current Official Community Plan was adopted in 2007, with minor amendments having been made to plan over the last 10 years.  This revision is an opportunity to update the OCP to align with other planning initiatives the City has undertaken in recent years, such as the Active Transportation Plan and the Quesnel Parks, Green Spaces and Outdoor Recreation Master Plan.

Public involvement is key in improving the implementation of the OCP and developing policies that reflect Quesnel’s changing needs. The new, updated plan will shape the community to be more livable, sustainable and fun in the years ahead.

Stay tuned for more updates and learn where and when opportunities to participate in public engagement activities will be held. The City looks forward to hearing your insights to help address community opportunities and challenges.

2007 Official Community Plan

Our Official Community Plan (2007) is our guiding vision. It guides Council’s decision-making on a diverse range of topics that impact all of us, including transportation, economic development, parks and recreation, and housing, to name a few. When a new development is proposed, we must ensure it is consistent with our long range policy, otherwise, we need to go through the process to consider changing it.
