We are now in Phase 4!

Phase 4 is the plan “adoption and implementation” phase of the planning process, with a focus on walking the talk. Activities during Phase 4 include refining the Official Community Plan (OCP) based on feedback from the community open houses and feedback survey, and holding a Public Hearing prior to final adoption of the bylaw by the Regional Board. The OCP establishes a community vision, designates future land use patterns, coordinates policy to protect features and infrastructure, and informs financial planning and servicing. The OCP is broad statements of goals, objectives and policies guiding development in the planning area. The implementation of the OCP depends on decisions and actions of the community (individuals, businesses, developers), qathet Regional District, and other levels of government that have jurisdiction within or adjacent to the planning area.

The next public event will be a Public Hearing of the Official Community Plan Bylaw. Notices will be published on this website, in the Texada Express Lines, and the Powell River PEAK.
