Modernized Official Community Plan for the Electoral Areas
Have You Thought About the Future of These Places?
The Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD) is developing an Official Community Plan for the Electoral Areas. This work involves the harmonization and then modernization of seven Electoral Area Official Community Plans (OCPs) and eight Zoning Bylaws to create one unified OCP for the Electoral Areas (including complementary local area plans) and one Zoning Bylaw for the following nine electoral areas:
Area A - Mill Bay / Malahat Area B - Shawnigan Lake Area C - Cobble Hill Area D - Cowichan Bay Area E - Cowichan Station / Sahtlam / Glenora Area F - Cowichan Lake South / Skutz Fall Area G - Saltair Area H - North Oyster / Diamond Area I - Youbou / Meade Creek
Watch as the Electoral Area Directors talk about their desire to protect this place and create a vision for the future.
Keep checking back for information on the following consultation and engagement opportunities:
Opportunities to participate online (including alternatives to PlaceSpeak)
