Vernon establishing long-term land use activities

Council receives draft official community plan but makes no decisions

Vernon council received a draft official community plan Monday.

The document covers land-use activities for the community, while also dealing with issues such as transportation, parks, culture and economic development.

“Overall, I am pleased,” said Coun. Juliette Cunningham, of the draft which has been developed from public input and will replace the 2008 OCP.

“We had such a strong document in 2008 and now we’re just streamlining and reaffirming what we have done.”

Land use changes are proposed for some properties.

The draft plan will be considered further in October.

For more details, look at Wednesday’s Morning Star.
