Kelowna 2030: Greening our Future
A new Kelowna 2030 OCP (Bylaw 10500) was adopted by City Council on May 30, 2011.
The new OCP is intended to address sustainability as the focus of community goals, objectives and policy.
The Kelowna Official Community Plan (OCP) provides a policy framework for Council by addressing issues such as housing, transportation, infrastructure, parks, economic development and the natural and social environment.
Official Community Plans deal with issues expected to arise over the coming twenty-year period. These plans are typically reviewed/refined every five years to ensure that the OCP continues to meet community needs.
