Official Community Plans

The ACRD is made up of six electoral areas, and each area has its own Official Community Plan (OCP).

The OCP's were developed collaboratively with the local Advisory Planning Commissions (APC's), the Electoral Area Directors and the ACRD Board of Directors inconsultation with community members. Consultation through open houses and public hearings with members of the general public, area residents and property owners, and technical agencies (ie. Island Health, Provincial Ministries, First Nations, etc.) provided valuable direction and vision for future development of each of the electoral areas.
