Rural OCP review continuing in Comox Valley

The Comox Valley Regional District is reviewing and updating the rural Official Community Plan, which applies to lands outside the boundaries of Comox, Courtenay and Cumberland.

The first set of community consultations were held this month.

Along with the Regional Growth Strategy and the rural zoning bylaw, the OCP guides development of rural lands in the district. When drafted, it will be shared online and through a series of public open houses expected to be held in the spring. The community’s views on the draft bylaw will assist with further refinements or corrections to the bylaw.

After second reading, there will be a further community meeting and public hearing to garner views on the content of the bylaw, prior to adoption. The public hearing is tentatively scheduled for June.

The document is expected to be adopted by October.

Those with a specific area of concern that would be topical for a community meeting are asked to send an e-mail to amacdonald@comoxvalleyrd.ca.

Up-to-date Information and opportunities for input will also be available at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca.
