KIMBERLEY, BC – The City of Kimberley is currently updating its Official Community Plan (OCP).
Beginning Wednesday, January 20th through Saturday, January 23rd the City will be hosting its ‘OCP in a Week’ events throughout the community. Sessions are scheduled at multiple locations including downtown in the Platzl at the Green Door, Centennial Hall, Timber Hitch Coffee Shop in Marysville, and at Kimberley Alpine Resort.
The Official Community Plan sets out the vision and supporting policies to guide development and land use decisions in Kimberley. Community input is essential to the development of the OCP. This is an opportunity for community members, groups and other stakeholders to have their say in how Kimberley should evolve.
“We have organized a range of engagement opportunities at a variety of locations for residents and business operators to participate in our ‘OCP in a Week’ event” states Troy Pollock, City of Kimberley Planning Services Manager. “This is the community’s plan. We need your input to understand the community’s expectations around land use and development. We look forward to seeing you throughout the week!”
For those that cannot make any of the scheduled events, you can participate at your convenience from your computer or mobile device through the PlaceSpeak online engagement platform. PlaceSpeak provides a convenient option for community members to share their thoughts and comment on topics that are important to them. An online community survey has also been designed to gather input on the OCP and City Services.
