Steamboat Jubilee Mountain OCP

The current Steamboat – Jubilee Mountain OCP was adopted in 2006. This planning process provides an opportunity to:

  • update the land use policies with the current views of the community;
  • include development permits for environmentally sensitive areas within the plan area; and
  • re-visit the community’s vision for the commercial core in Edgewater.

Introductory Meetings will be held in July in the communities of Edgewater, Wilmer and Brisco. General information regarding Official Community Plans and the proposed planning process will be similar at each meeting; however, discussion regarding proposed policies will be specific to the individual plan areas.

  • New Official Community Plan Process Soon to be Underway in Area G

    The RDEK Board of Directors has approved a new planning process to review and update the Steamboat – Jubilee Mountain Official Community Plan in Electoral Area G.

    “The current Official Community Plan (OCP) was adopted in 2006 and this process will provide us with an opportunity to check-in with residents to determine what is still relevant and where changes may be required to the plan,” says RDEK Electoral Area G Director Gerry Wilkie. “One aspect of the OCP review that many residents of Edgewater will be eager to learn more about will be working on the community’s vision for the...

    The RDEK Board of Directors has approved a new planning process to review and update the Steamboat – Jubilee Mountain Official Community Plan in Electoral Area G.

    “The current Official Community Plan (OCP) was adopted in 2006 and this process will provide us with an opportunity to check-in with residents to determine what is still relevant and where changes may be required to the plan,” says RDEK Electoral Area G Director Gerry Wilkie. “One aspect of the OCP review that many residents of Edgewater will be eager to learn more about will be working on the community’s vision for the old Credit Union and Improvement District buildings in town.”

    The OCP review extends well beyond the boundaries of Edgewater, as the plan covers most of the private land in Area G. “The plan area covers Wilmer, the rural areas around Radium, and extends north to Brisco and Spillimacheen,” explains RDEK Planner Michele Bates, who will be leading the project. “Aside from the general review and check-in, we also hope to explore new opportunities for development permit areas related to FireSmart residential construction and environmentally sensitive areas to be consistent with our other OCPs.”

    The planning process is expected to take between 12 and 18 months to complete.

    “We will ensure the community is informed every step of the way, starting with an introductory Open House within the next few months,” adds Bates.

    An Official Community Plan (OCP) is a long-term planning document that provides a framework for community development. More information about the Steamboat – Jubilee Mountain OCP planning process will be available on engage.rdek.bc.ca in the near future.
