New Official Community Plan Adopted By Council

August 31, 2018

Fort St. John, BC – Council adopted the City of Fort St. John’s Official Community Plan (OCP) update at the Regular Council Meeting on August 27, 2018. Over the past 2 years, various community workshops, surveys, and events provided opportunities for residents to contribute to the City’s guiding document. This policy document addresses critical issues such as diversity, quality of life, economic opportunity, land development and environmental sustainability.

“An Official Community Plan is a key document for any community, it is the community’s vision for their future captured through the public participation where our residents shared their thoughts and hopes for our community.  Developing this is not an easy task and thanks goes to the residents who provided input, the hard-work of City Staff, and the dedication of Council. The OCP will guide our city’s growth over the next number of years as we continue to take a planned and principled approach to decision-making,” stated Mayor Lori Ackerman.
