Coldstream residents will have an opportunity to help shape the future of their community.
A website is being developed as part of the district’s official community plan review this spring.
“The site will act as a blog for comments,” said Trevor Seibel, director of financial administration.
The OCP outlines preferred land use activities in a community, and one of the goals of the website is to provide residents with information on the process.
Officials are confident residents will want to get involved.
“Here’s somewhere where the community can talk to each other about the OCP,” Mike Reiley, director of development services, told council.
“You will be able to hear what the community is talking about. I suspect there will be different themes or subjects.”
There will be times when district staff will pose specific questions to facilitate discussion.
“That information will form part of our public process,” said Reiley.
The website can be found at www.districtofcoldstream.ca/ocp.
“It’s a little bit bare right now,” said Seibel of content.
“Once we get started, more documents will be posted and there will be an opportunity for comments.”
