An Official Community Plan (OCP) sets the direction and priorities to guide decisions on planning and land use management within the jurisdiction of a city. The City of Kamloops’ OCP, KAMPLAN, hasn’t been updated since 2004. Much has changed in the last 13 years and the City faces new challenges including climate change, rising energy costs, concerns around affordable housing, growth management, economic development, and other emerging issues. The City needs an updated OCP to successfully plan for the future of Kamloops.
In Let’s Talk Phase 1 of the KAMPLAN Review and Update process, the City asked residents to identify what they value and share their vision for the future of Kamloops. Residents also identified current issues in the community to consider in this update of the OCP. Read the draft Community Vision and Values and the Phase 1 Public Input Report for Phase 1 results.
In Phase 2, the City sought input on two land use scenarios and policy directions under 10 OCP topic areas. The key themes and results from Phase 2 are captured in the Phase 2 Public Input Report.
Drawing from existing OCP policies as well as public and stakeholder feedback from Phase 2, City staff are now preparing a 1st draft of the new and updated KAMPLAN. The 1st draft is undergoing a technical and, legal review in advance of another round of stakeholder and public engagement activities and events taking place in late May and early June 2017. Residents will have a chance to review and provide feedback on the draft OCP through an online questionnaire and KAMPLAN Café roundtable discussions.
