The District of North Saanich has published the agenda for the Special Meeting of Council on Monday, November 22 at 7 p.m., to discuss the next steps for the Official Community Plan (OCP) review.
Over the past eleven months, there have been a variety of opportunities for the public to provide input into the first phases of updating the OCP. Hundreds of North Saanich residents have participated through online surveys, workshops, and meetings, providing valuable input about how the community might change over the next 20 years.
At Monday’s meeting, Council will consider a revised Phase 2 Engagement Summary and Policy Directions Report, along with a revised draft Phase 3 Engagement Plan, revised work plan, and associated budget that Council requested in its July 12 motions. The discussion will determine the next steps in the OCP process.
We encourage you to review the agenda package, as it contains important information about the OCP process to date, as well as details about potential activities for future public engagement.
