The subject lands affected by the new Official Community Plan and its appendices include the entire Town of Osoyoos.
An “Official Community Plan” (OCP) sets out the long-term vision, objectives, land use plans and policies for the future of Osoyoos. The development of an OCP is a requirement under the Local Government Act. The OCP provides policy direction on housing and density, neighbourhood character, economic development, transportation, parks and green space and community facilities.
Bylaw No. 1375 proposes to repeal Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 1230 and replace it with a new Official Community Plan and its Appendices and Schedule, the “Southeast Meadowlark Area Plan".
