Speaker series: The OCP—Why it matters

Dave Witty (FCIP, RPP) talked about Bowen Island’s Official Community Plan (OCP), and why it matters. The OCP helps to guide and manage Bowen Island’s future development and growth, balancing the social, environmental, and economic needs of the community. An important legal document, the OCP contains objectives and policies that guide municipal decisions on housing, transportation, parks and trail development, environment and natural resource use, municipal services, and economic development. In short, it provides the decision framework for almost all aspects of our Island life.
