The District of North Saanich thanks the many North Saanich residents who provided feedback on the Official Community Plan (OCP) review during the third phase of public engagement.
Phase 3 opened on May 16 and closed on June 12, 2022.
Hundreds of residents participated in the survey and visited the online and in-person open houses, where they spoke to planning staff, asked questions about the OCP review process and materials, and provided feedback.
Additionally, residents from the district’s “Southeast Quadrant” participated at a special workshop tailored to address their community’s specific needs and hopes for the future. The OCP Project Team also hosted seven dialogue sessions with various community, resident, and environmental groups as part of the engagement process.
Results from the survey, and feedback from the open houses, workshop, and dialogue sessions will be captured in a comprehensive engagement summary document for Phase 3, and provided to Council at the Council Meeting on Monday, August 15.
This report will document the engagement process, including who participated, what was heard at each activity, and how the feedback is recommended to be used to shape the draft OCP.
In 2023, the draft OCP will be presented to North Saanich residents for review and another round of engagement.
Residents are encouraged to subscribe for project updates at connectnorthsaanich.ca/ocp to receive emails at key project milestones and be notified of future engagement activities and opportunities to provide feedback.
