The Cowichan Valley Regional District is modernizing the Official Community Plan for the electoral areas (OCP Bylaw 4373).
The OCP sets out a vision for the electoral areas over the next five to 10 years consistent with Cowichan 2050.
The Cowichan 2050 Regional Collaboration Framework was initiated by the CVRD in September 2017. In part, the project grew out of the CVRD’s 2016 Corporate Strategic Plan, which identified a need for a regional planning strategy or framework to support more sustainable and coordinated growth and development in the region.
In 2021, the CVRD harmonized seven official community plans into one OCP for the electoral areas (Bylaw 4270). The harmonized OCP allows the CVRD to address regional issues holistically and plan more efficiently.
Local Area Plan open houses have been scheduled. For Area G (Saltair/Gulf Islands), it will take place Feb. 10, 2023 from 4-8 p.m. at the Saltair Community Centre with a presentation at 6 p.m.
