Cumberland OCP in final stages

With the exception of Coun. Kate Greening, Cumberland council approved Monday a project steering committee to guide the final stages of the Village's Official Community Plan.

The committee will consist of Village CAO Sundance Topham, senior planner Judith Walker, a technical staff person and a planner from the Comox Valley Regional District.

Greening questions why Stantec Consulting of Victoria was retained to draft the OCP Local Citizen Advisory Group Terms of Reference. She also feels the committee should not include a district planner.

"I don't see what the fear is having the CVRD on the steering committee," Coun. Roger Kishi said. "We're talking about having a full, transparent process."

The steering committee will report to council. The LCAG will include 15 to 25 citizens to advise Village staff and Stantec on the strengths and areas to improve upon the 2004 OCP. Review and revision of the document is scheduled to be completed by mid-November.

A 2013 OCP review and revise kickoff community event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 26 at the Cultural Centre.
