Second open house held for Panorama OCP

Second survey regarding OCP process available now

The RDEK hosted its second Open House at the Panorama Mountain Resort Tuesday evening to provide an update on the planning process to date and explain the next steps.

“RDEK staff provided an overview of the results of the recent Issues & Ideas Survey and attendees had the opportunity to begin providing feedback on potential policies and direction that could be included in the plan,” explains RDEK Area F Director Susan Clovechok.

For those unable to attend the Open House, a second survey is now available to gather input on some of these policy areas. The survey can be found on the Panorama & Area OCP project page on engage.rdek.bc.ca. The survey deadline is September 2.

“In addition to the survey, we have launched a new interactive mapping tool that provides an opportunity for residents and property owners in the plan area to provide more detailed information, share their local knowledge, and identify areas of concern,” explains RDEK Planner Karen Macleod.

The Pin Drop mapping tool, survey and copies of the information and display boards from the Open House are all available on the project page on engage.rdek.bc.ca.

The RDEK will continue to consult with the Resort, First Nations and other stakeholders in the coming months. Following the close of this public consultation phase in September, feedback gathered will be considered as the draft Official Community Plan is prepared in the fall. Once complete, the draft will be presented to the public for further consultation and comment.
