Panorama Area OCP

We want your feedback on the draft Panorama Area Official Community Plan (OCP).

The Open House held on December 30th was a chance to learn about the draft plan and kicks off a public comment period. We know that many property owners in the Panorama area are seasonal and are unable to attend in person. The same information that was presented and available at the Open House is available here. If you want additional context or clarification, please contact Karen MacLeod at kmacleod@rdek.bc.ca.

Please take some time to review the draft OCP, map schedules and open house posters. If there are things you are interested in you can read just those pertinent sections of the plan or you can read the entire document.

When you are ready to provide comments, please use the comment box below. In order for us to best use your feedback, please ensure that you:

  • Note which policy you are commenting on (e.g. policy 4.3(1)(c))
  • State what you like or where you have concerns with the policy.

Due to high engagement this week, we have extended the deadline for comments to Friday, February 21, 2020.

    “Having the participation and feedback from the community is pivotal to this project’s success, so it was wonderful to have such a strong turnout from the community throughout the day,” says Electoral Area F Director Susan Clovechok.

    The draft OCP, associated maps, copies of the poster boards from the open house and more have been posted on the Panorama & Area OCP project page on engage.rdek.bc.ca.

    A public comment period on the draft plan is now open. The comment form is available on engage.rdek.bc.ca and will be open until Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Those who do not have access to a computer, but wish to make comment on the draft can provide written submissions to the RDEK prior to the deadline.

    “A great deal of work has gone into crafting the plan, and I’m excited to have it at the stage where we can present it to the community. I strongly encourage residents and property owners in the plan area to review the information presented, read over the draft and let us know your thoughts prior to the mid-February deadline,” adds Clovechok.

    Following the close of the comment period, feedback will be considered as the OCP is finalized. It will then be presented to the RDEK Board for first reading prior to going through a formal public hearing. The OCP planning process is expected to be complete by mid-2020.

    After several months of consultation, the RDEK will be presenting the draft Panorama and Area Official Community Plan (OCP) to the public next month.

    “We have received feedback from the community from our open houses, two surveys, workshops and online engagement tools and all of the feedback provided has been compiled and considered in the preparation of the draft OCP,” says Electoral Area F Director Susan Clovechok.

    A summary of the recent survey results has just been posted on engage.rdek.bc.ca.

    The next step in the process will be a third open house, where the draft Official Community Plan will be presented. “We are hoping the community continues to stay engaged and will join us at the upcoming open house to review the draft plan and to provide continued feedback,” adds Clovechok.

    The open house will be held December 30, 2019 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the Panorama Fire Hall. “We recognize there is varied ownership within the plan area and that many property owners live outside the area, so we are hoping that by holding the open house at the end of December, many of those owners will be able to attend in person,” adds Clovechok.

    For those that are not able to attend, all of the information that will be presented at the open house will be posted on the Panorama & Area OCP Project Page on engage.rdek.bc.ca and shared via the RDEK’s Panorama email group.

    The OCP planning process kicked off earlier this past spring and is expected to be complete by mid-2020.

  • Panorama Residents Introduced to New Community Planning Process

    11 months ago

    Over 70 people participated in the introductory Open House for the Panorama Official Community Plan (OCP) process on Saturday.

    “The main purpose of the event was to explain what an OCP is and what this planning process involves, while being able to meet directly with residents and open those lines of communication,” explains RDEK Area F Director Susan Clovechok. “I can’t emphasize enough the importance of community involvement, so I was pleased to see so many people in attendance.”

    Over 70 people participated in the introductory Open House for the Panorama Official Community Plan (OCP) process on Saturday.

    “The main purpose of the event was to explain what an OCP is and what this planning process involves, while being able to meet directly with residents and open those lines of communication,” explains RDEK Area F Director Susan Clovechok. “I can’t emphasize enough the importance of community involvement, so I was pleased to see so many people in attendance.”

    In addition to the general overview, the RDEK’s lead planner on the project, Karen MacLeod, explained how the RDEK will work with Panorama Mountain Resort throughout the process and discussed the future development potential of the community. “Having residents understand what the possibilities are and then share their ideas and vision for the future of their community is a key component in developing the draft plan,” adds MacLeod.

    The Open House was the first step in what will be a 12-month process and the RDEK will be providing information and engagement opportunities both in-person at events such as Saturday’s Open House and online through a digital engagement platform. “We recognize many property owners live outside the community and are eager to participate in the process. The RDEK will be using online engagement as an additional tool to ensure everyone feels they can access the information they need and can meaningfully participate in the process regardless of where they may be,” adds Clovechok.

    Copies of the information and display boards from the Open House are posted on the project page on engage.rdek.bc.ca.

    The next step will be an issues and ideas survey, which the RDEK hopes to have out in the next few weeks.

  • New Official Community Plan Process Gets Underway for Panorama Area

    12 months ago

    A new planning process will soon be underway for the Panorama Area.

    “The current Official Community Plan (OCP) was adopted in 1999 and was based heavily on a Concept Development Plan prepared by the previous owner of Panorama Mountain Resort,” explains RDEK Electoral Area F Director Susan Clovechok. “Over the past twenty years there has been significant growth and change in the area, much of which is not recognized in the current OCP, so it is time to update it.”

    A new planning process will soon be underway for the Panorama Area.

    “The current Official Community Plan (OCP) was adopted in 1999 and was based heavily on a Concept Development Plan prepared by the previous owner of Panorama Mountain Resort,” explains RDEK Electoral Area F Director Susan Clovechok. “Over the past twenty years there has been significant growth and change in the area, much of which is not recognized in the current OCP, so it is time to update it.”

    Recognizing the varied ownership, and that many property owners live outside the area, the RDEK will be adding a new online engagement component. “We will be working directly with the Resort and stakeholders, and will continue to have Open Houses and face-to-face opportunities for residents; however, we will also be adding a new digital engagement aspect to the consultation process to enable the widest participation possible,” says Planner Karen MacLeod.

    The RDEK will be hosting an introductory Open House on March 23 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm in the Copper Crown Conference Room at Panorama Mountain Resort. The Open House will introduce the process and project milestones and begin the conversation with the community about what is important to them. “The goal of updating the OCP is to ensure it reflects the community’s vision for the future of the area and having the community’s participation is key to ensuring we achieve that goal,” adds Clovechok.

    The OCP covers properties within the Panorama Mountain Resort and a small number of private properties surrounding it. It is expected to take about a year to complete.

    An Official Community Plan (OCP) is a long term strategic planning document that reflects the community’s vision for the future while providing a policy framework to promote greater certainty in land use decision making by the Regional District Board.

    More information about the Panorama Area OCP planning process is available on engage.rdek.bc.ca.
