Fairmont area OCP focus of information meeting
A new Official Community Plan (OCP) for the Fairmont Hot Springs and Columbia Lake area will be the focus of an information sharing meeting next week in Fairmont.
“This will be an introductory public meeting to kick off the new planning process,” said RDEK Planning & Development Services Manager Andrew McLeod. “Our staff will provide an introduction to OCPs and an overview of the expected planning process. Those in attendance will also have an opportunity to share their knowledge of the plan area and provide feedback on a variety of topics.”
The meeting will run on Wednesday, May 18 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort’s Cedar Room.
“This is a good opportunity to learn about the planning process,” says Electoral Area F Director Wendy Booth. “These processes are intended to reflect the community’s vision for its future, so we like to have people engaged and involved every step of the way.”
For those unable to attend the introductory meeting, there will be additional opportunities for involvement, including a visioning workshop this summer.
The Fairmont Hot Springs & Columbia Lake Area Official Community Plan will replace the existing Fairmont Hot Springs OCP and extend south to the Electoral Area F boundary. The process is expected to take up to 18 months to complete.
