New official community plan coming for South Cariboo

Public input sought for CRD's South Cariboo Area OCP review process

  • Feb. 11, 2016 7:00 a.m.

The Cariboo Regional District (CRD) has launched a process to update the Official Community Plan (OCP) for the South Cariboo area.

The existing OCP was adopted in 1996 and many changes have taken place over the past 20 years. This guiding document will be updated to align community values, aspirations and perspectives for growth within the South Cariboo.

Some of the issues the updated OCP will address include economic development, agriculture policy, shore land management practices, environmental protection and climate change.

The OCP area includes 108 Mile Ranch and 93-97 Mile areas Electoral Area G, Gateway/Buffalo Creek, Forest Grove, Ruth Lake and Canim Lake in Electoral Area H and Lone Butte and Horse Lake in Electoral Area L.

The CRD will be hosting open house meetings:

Today (Feb. 11), 2-4:30 p.m., Forest Grove Community Hall

Today, (Feb. 11), 6-8 p.m., 108 Mile Community Hall

Tomorrow, Feb. 12, 2-4:30 p.m., Lone Butte Community Hall

These sessions will be a great opportunity to learn about this important project and help make sure your voice is heard,” says CRD chair Al Richmond.

“Community support is critical to the success of an OCP and we want to ensure residents are provided with opportunities to contribute to this OCP review process.”

An advisory committee of residents from the South Cariboo, representing a diversity of backgrounds and offering a wealth of experience, will be assisting the CRD.
