Coldstream OCP input sought

The district is hosting an open house Thursday on the Official Community Plan at the municipal office

Coldstream residents are invited to gain some information about the future of their community.

The district is hosting an open house Thursday on the Official Community Plan at the municipal office between 3 and 8 pm.

“Our intention is to provide information,” said Michael Reiley, Coldstream’s director of development services.

A public hearing will follow and is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 23.

Some proposals in the OCP include allowing urban chickens in the community, expanded riparian development permit areas to protect fish habitat, new DPA’s to protect environmental land and greenhouse gas reduction targets.

Comments about the proposed plan can be emailed, mailed, faxed or dropped off at the district office.
