OCP review continues with resident outreach

City to host workshops, open-house in the coming weeks to collect feedback.

White Rock residents interested in helping to shape the city’s future have some opportunities to get involved in the coming weeks, as the city continues its Official Community Plan review.

A limited number of spaces are available for neighbourhood workshops, set for Sept. 17 from 5-7 p.m. at the White Rock Community Centre. Interested participants are asked to sign up for a specific area of interest – east, west, waterfront or city core – and take part in a roundtable discussion on the strengths, issues and themes of each neighbourhood.

Following the workshops, the city will host an open house at the Centennial Leisure Centre on Oct. 8 from 5-7 p.m.

The drop-in event will give attendees an opportunity to share input on the draft vision and goal statements, developed based on input from the city’s Vision Fair, OCP survey and neighbourhood workshops.

To register for the Sept. 17 workshops, email imagine@whiterockcity.ca with your name, address and neighbourhood of interest.
