Support Fort St John News

The City of Fort St. John has received a considerable response from residents on what they want to see on the Official Community Plan.

On Monday, City Council was given an update on how the plan is taking shape. The City has received around 300 responses from both city and rural residents.

Although not all of the responses have been totalled up yet, there were some items that appeared to be topping the list, says City Councillor Bruce Christensen. Christensen says recreation and safety were two of the biggest items that residents wanted to see included in the plan.

He says residents appear to want more recreational areas, such as walking paths, as well as more sidewalks, so they don’t have to walk on the streets.

Christensen says city staff has been working hard to include public opinion in the OCP and find out what residents in and around Fort St. John want for the future of the city.

The first draft of the OCP is expected to be presented to city council in October.
