Official Community Plan Amendments

The City's Citywide Official Community Plan (OCP) is a comprehensive plan to guide future land use and address related needs for amenities, services, and infrastructure support. The OCP operates in conjunction with the Zoning Bylaw and other municipal bylaws, and guides City Council as they consider zoning changes.

The OCP may be amended, from time to time, with regard to specific issues or proposals. A further overview regarding the OCP and Zoning Bylaw is provided in the Zoning Bylaw/Official Community Plan Amendment Guide.

Public Information Meetings

From time to time, developers host public information meetings at the request of the Planning & Development Department or on their own initiative. The main purpose of a public information meeting is to provide information about a proposed complex development project to the residents in the area and to obtain feedback so that issues and concerns can be identified and addressed early in the development application  process. When holding public information meetings, the proponents should observe and comply with the following guideline document.
