The Planning Department is currently working on the following major initiatives:
Texada Island (Area D) Official Community Plan Update
It’s time to renew the 13 year old Texada Island Official Community Plan! The Official Community Plan (OCP) is the policy document that sets out the long term vision, goals and objectives for the future of your island. The OCP helps guide the Regional Board, staff and community members to make decisions on issues of land use, housing, economic development, social well-being, environment and transportation. This update will provide a renewed vision for Texada and its residents, as well as the policy framework to guide the island into the future.

Green Shores for Homes
Since 2014, the Regional District has been collaborating with the Stewardship Centre for British Columbia as one of six local governments selected to join the Green Shores Pilot Program. Green Shores for Homes is a voluntary and incentive-based program designed to help communities restore natural shorelines and enjoy the many environmental, recreational, scenic, and shoreline protection benefits they bring. If you own waterfront property and want to learn more about Green Shores, the Regional District can help you connect with professionals and resources to make this cost-effective solution work for you!
