Official Community Plan

The City’s Official Community Plan is a comprehensive plan to guide future land use and address related needs for amenities, services, and infrastructure support. The OCP operates in conjunction with the Zoning Bylaw and other municipal bylaws, and guides City Council as they consider zoning changes.

Zoning Bylaw

The Zoning Bylaw defines: permitted uses, development density, siting of buildings, building heights, lot coverage and off-street parking and loading, among other items, within Zoning Districts (i.e., zones).

Transportation Master Plan

A Transportation Master Plan is a blueprint document used by City staff to guide development of appropriate transportation facilities within the City and to answer inquires from residents and road users. The Transportation Master Plan will also be used by City staff to guide growth and new development.
