Pitt Meadows Invites Residents to Create New Community Plan
Pitt Meadows, BC: The City of Pitt Meadows is launching a review of the Official Community Plan (OCP) this weekend on Saturday, May 12 from 2pm-5pm at the Pitt Meadows Family Rec Centre. Residents are invited to drop in and learn about the OCP’s role in shaping the community’s future and how their participation in the coming months is vital to creating a vision for Pitt Meadows.
“This is an exciting and major milestone for the community. More citizen voices will create a strong identity for Pitt Meadows,” says Mayor John Becker. “When community members, Council, staff, and businesses are involved in creating a plan for our city, the resulting plan will truly reflect the vision of those who live, work and invest here.”
An OCP is a forward-looking, 20 year plan that guides decisions about land use and growth, transportation, agricultural preservation, economic development, and housing. Pitt Meadows’ OCP was created in 2008, and although there have been changes made since then, there has never been a full review since its adoption.
The launch on Saturday May 12 is the first of many events hosted by the City over the next 24 months. Other opportunities will seek input on various areas of the Official Community Plan and residents will be able to participate in a variety of ways.
Input from participants will be combined with research and analysis to ensure that it translates into clear policies that are brought to life as attractive and functional buildings, streets, town centres, and public spaces as Pitt Meadows grows.
