Official Community Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

It's been 14 years since the City of Port Alberni (the City) updated its Official Community Plan (OCP), and much has changed in that time. As the City continues to actively market Port Alberni, rapid growth and new opportunities are quickly taking centre stage in the region's success story. As such, Port Alberni's growth and vision must be managed in a way that respects the character and needs of the community, First Nations and the surrounding lands. As the City works to update the OCP, we look to you for help in shaping this important document.

The City of Port Alberni and the engagement team have completed our first round of community engagement as of March 16th, 2022. Thank you for your input and participation in survey #1, the interactive WebMap, the Walkshop and the focus groups over the last six weeks. Please look at the project’s key milestones and next steps in the ‘Lifecycle’ to your right.

Input gathered from the public and stakeholders will be considered alongside technical research of policies, plans, strategies, guidelines, regulations and bylaw documents, transportation networks, development permit areas, land use designations, updated population projections, housing characteristics, and legislative requirements.

We will be reporting back to the community with an engagement summary to provide a clear explanation as to what was heard and how specific issues and ideas were considered. The summary will be posted to this webpage in April.

Thank you for taking part in this important process. Please watch for information on upcoming engagement opportunities. There will be more chances to participate!
