Residents association provides input on OCP

The new Official Community Plan contains many recommendations which if implemented would change many aspects of Oak Bay

The new Oak Bay Official Community Plan (found on the municipal website  www.oakbay.ca) contains many recommendations which if implemented would change many aspects of Oak Bay, including the housing types allowed in various neighbourhoods.

To promote openness, transparency and maximum community involvement throughout the activities of all committees tasked with implementation of the Official Community Plan (OCP) the North Henderson Residents’ Association (NHRA) asks Oak Bay council that:

Committee memberships reflect all geographic regions of Oak Bay, including North Henderson;

Residents of all regions receive an opportunity to apply for membership on one or more committees;

All committees produce timely  as well as detailed minutes with recorded votes rather than edited “process notes” to record the essence of discussions and all decisions;

Meeting announcements, times, locations and agendas be widely distributed in a timely manner;

All documents used  by the committees be made available to the public prior to applicable committee meetings;

The method and format for public correspondence with committee members (as well as the public correspondence itself) be posted on the municipal website;

Committee members be identified along with the neighbourhood where they live;

The community be able to comment verbally and/or in writing on all committees’ terms of reference; and,

Committee proceedings be broadcast by the municipality.
