Official Community Plan

Village of Lumby Official Community Plan (OCP) was adopted in November, 2005. The OCP is a blueprint as to Lumby's future. The plan is a working document and is constantly under review in order that goals and objectives are being monitored, and that the plan recognizes the requirements of societal needs, as Lumby is moving towards a "Green Economy".

At the Regular Meeting of March 3, 2014, Council directed staff to draft Terms of Reference that would synchronize the Regional Context Statement work program and the Official Community Plan (Age-Friendly) Update.

The Village of Lumby has been undertaking the development of an Official Community Plan Regional Context Statement, with $11,500 allocated from a Gas Tax Regionally Significant Projects Grant to complete this work. The works to be undertaken on this project include an analysis of the Village’s Official Community Plan, the preparation of a draft Regional Context Statement, a review of the draft Statements by Council and external agencies, consultation with Village residents and a final review by Village Council and the Regional District Board of Directors. To date, $3,000 have been used towards the preparation of a draft Regional Context Statement, leaving $8,500 to complete the rest of the project.

In November of 2013, the Village was awarded a $20,000 grant by the Union of BC Municipalities to develop and refine Policies in the Official Community Plan that would assist the Village in creating a sustainable and age-friendly community. The works to be undertaken on this project include an analysis of the Village’s Official Community Plan, consultation with key stakeholders and Village residents, compiling a report on the findings of the analysis and consultation, and drafting ‘age-friendly’ OCP Policies for Council’s consideration.

Combining the above noted projects allows for efficient use of financial resources by synchronizing two OCP amendment processes that have significant public engagement elements. In this regard, the total budget for the combined projects would be $28,500. The work would be undertaken by Regional District Planning staff with guidance from Village staff and Council.

To facilitate further discussion on this matter, Council approved a Terms of Reference at the May 20, 2014 Regular Meeting. Click here to view the Terms of Reference.
