The Official Community Plan (OCP) Land Use Amendments open house June 27 – June 30, 2011 enabled community engagement and discussion with residents. All comments and feedback will be taken into consideration for public hearing in August 2011.
One resident spoke to us about what they would like their neighbourhood to look like in the future:
What do you see as key components of creating a complete neighbourhood?
“In my opinion, key neighbourhoods should include access to green park space and trail networks, alternative means of transportation (biking and walking), housing options (single and multiple family), and small institutional and commercial (independent milk store, community facility or school, etc.).”
“Yes when I consider the alternatives.”
Do you think it is important to have a diversity of housing in each neighbourhood?
“Yes but kept to reflect the current neighbourhood (for example high density in Vancouver is different than high density in Revelstoke). Diversity of housing would allow long term residents options to move within a neighbourhood when needs change and the opportunity for a variety of demographics to populate the area.”
The proposed amendments can be viewed here and one can also find more information on our resources page. Hard copies are available to view or borrow in the Planning Department at 216 Mackenzie Avenue. Comments and feedback will be accepted until July 31, 2011 for public hearing in August, 2011. Please refer to our contacts page to submit your feedback.
