The City’s Citywide Official Community Plan (OCP) is a comprehensive plan to guide future land use and address related needs for amenities, services, and infrastructure support. The OCP operates in conjunction with the Zoning Bylaw and other municipal bylaws, and guides City Council as they consider zoning changes.
The OCP may be amended, from time to time, with regard to specific issues or proposals. For an overview of the OCP and Zoning Bylaw, please refer to the Zoning Bylaw/Official Community Plan Amendment Guide.
Bylaw Third Reading Extensions
When an application has received a third reading from Council, the applicant has one year from the date of third reading to complete the application requirements and obtain Council’s final adoption of the related bylaw amendment.
If the applicant has not met all of the requirements within the one year timeframe, the bylaw amendment will lapse. The applicant may submit a request to extend this one-year period between third and final adoption.
