White Rock’s Official Community Plan (OCP) is available on the White Rock City Website here and was written in 2017. The OCP before it was written in 2008 and is also available on the city’s website here.
The Community Charter and Local Government Act dictate that the OCP should capture how members of the community want their city to look like in the future. While the ideas behind city planning are complex, the OCP should be written with clarity in mind so that the average residents can understand what the OCP says, and how it affects the future of their city, yet the OCP also needs to precisely describe that vision so that Council an City Planners and developers can use it to make good decisions.
One way we can do better as a community is to make the OCP more accessible to the public, so they can use it to make informed decisions about their homes and home purchases in the future.
