Official Community Plan (OCP)


The Town of Osoyoos is updating the Official Community Plan (OCP) and we need your input.

What is an OCP you ask? It’s a guiding document that’s common to every municipality in British Columbia. Choose Your Osoyoos will take a 20+ year glimpse into the future of Osoyoos. It will reflect our vision, values, and plans for change.

Choose Your Osoyoos will help Council in making decisions on important issues such as housing, land use, transportation, our natural environment, economic development, and recreation.

A community vision cannot be created without consulting our community. So we’re asking you to show up, participate, and tell us what makes Osoyoos the best place to live in BC!
