Steamboat Jubilee Mountain OCP adopted
The Steamboat Jubilee Mountain Official Community Plan (OCP) was today adopted by the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Board of Directors.
“This has been a comprehensive process stretching over the course of several months and has culminated in an important guiding document that will provide direction within the plan area for years to come,” said Electoral Area G Director Gerry Wilkie.
The new OCP includes updated land use policies, development permits for environmentally sensitive lands and wildfire hazard within the plan area, and a host of other policies that will help provide a framework for development within the next five to ten years.
Prior to planning any new construction or land disturbance on their property, residents within the plan area are encouraged to check with the RDEK regarding the new Development Permit requirements.
“Residents and stakeholders play a key role in the success of any planning process, and I want to thank the many residents who were involved throughout the process. Their vision and feedback was critical in moving the OCP forward,” added Wilkie.
“I “also want to acknowledge and thank (RDEK) planner Michele Bates, who was instrumental in working with the community throughout the past 18 months.”
The OCP covers most of the private land in Area G including: Wilmer, the rural areas around Radium, and north to Brisco and Spillimacheen. It is expected to be posted on the RDEK’s website within the next few days.
