FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Official Community Plan is now in phase 3. Phase 3 involves the drafting of the document inclusive of mapping. To go from Phase 3 to Phase 4, the OCP team would like a workshop with council before the OCP goes public.

Mayor Lori Ackerman said she had no problem with meeting with the OCP team and they scheduled a meeting for Wednesday afternoon.

The OCP team says that the majority of the draft is complete, however there are still areas that need to be completed/discussed such as Community-to-Community discussions with First Nations, Agricultural Land Reserve, and Fringe Area Development.

After the workshop with Mayor and Council is complete, the draft of the OCP can then receive public feedback and suggestions.

The OCP team would like to bring the draft to the Block Party on September 10th to gather public feedback.
