Official community planning begins

Phase 1 of the planning begins with community open houses May 25 and June 4.

The people of Oak Bay have a chance to contribute their input to the Official Community Plan during upcoming open houses and visioning workshops.

The plan, a guide to community growth, hasn’t been updated since 1997. The update is intended to allow the district to renew its vision, objectives and policies on land use and development.

Phase 1 of the planning begins with community open houses May 25 and June 4.

The May 25 session runs from 1 to 4 p.m. at Windsor Pavilion.

Residents are invited to join the discussion June 4 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Emmanuel Baptist Church Gym, 2121 Cedar Hill Cross Rd.

Five “visioning workshops” that focus on one element of plan are scheduled to take place at municipal hall council chambers.

The discussions will centre around parks, recreation and environment May 28 from 4:30 to 6 p.m.; arts and culture May 28 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.; community and social services May 29 from 9:30 to 11 a.m.; business and commerce May 29 from noon to 1:30 p.m.; and education and facilities May 29 from 3:30 until 5 p.m.

Preregister by emailing kgreen@oakbay.ca or calling 250-598-3311.
