  • Remind me what an Official Community Plan is?

    An OCP is a long-term plan for a community. It guides land use by describing a community's vision for the future and includes objectives and policies to help achieve that vision. An OCP is used by the public when planning future use of their land or advocating for the community vision, and by the RDN when planning related community or infrastructure projects or approving development. The update process includes completing best practices research, reviewing technical information, reviewing existing RDN policies and strategies, and gathering information and feedback from community members.

    Thank you to the Area F Community! The Engagement Summary for Round 1 of the Official Community Plan Update project is now available. In February and March, more than 1000 community members attended an event or visited the website and approximately 335 people provided comments.


    The report includes a brief summary of input for a quick read as well as a detailed summary. All raw comments are included in an appendix. What was heard from the community in Round 1 will be used to develop policy options for community review. The second round of engagement will provide opportunities for community members to provide feedback on these draft policy options.


    Stay tuned for news about the second round of engagement for the project.
