Community Planning

Official Community Plans (OCP)

An Official Community Plan (OCP) is a comprehensive statement of goals, objectives and policies to guide decisions on planning and land use management across the lands covered by the Plan.

OCPs provide a coordinated action strategy so that property owners, developers and others can evaluate their respective land development plans, undertake projects and make more informed decisions. Read more about Community Planning
