District of Elkford updating its OCP

Over the next 18 months, the District of Elkford will be updating its Official Community Plan (OCP) with input from the community.

An OCP is a long-term planning document that outlines the vision, goals, policies and strategies for the future growth and development of a community. This plan guides decision-making, policies and investments in areas such as land use, infrastructure, transportation, housing, environment, arts and culture, parks and economic development. The last time the District of Elkford OCP was updated was in 2010.

“With the district’s existing OCP approaching 14 years old, it is due time for an update to our community’s most important document,” said Elkford Mayor Steve Fairbairn.

“Our community has grown and changed immensely over the last 14 years, and there is a new generation calling Elkford home. We’re excited to embark on this journey toward a new OCP that reflects our collective needs, values and priorities. I encourage all community members to get involved, have their say and help shape the future of Elkford!”

The update will take place through the following phases:

Throughout the update process, there will be opportunities for community members, stakeholders and Indigenous Nations to provide input and share feedback on the development of the OCP.

Stay in the loop by following the district’s Facebook account and website for opportunities to get involved and help create the roadmap for the future of Elkford. Everyone is also invited to the ElkFORWARD Fall Fest on Tuesday, October 24—from 5 to 8 p.m.—for a family-friendly event celebrating fall in Elkford and the update to the OCP.
