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.

  • What about Radium DryGulch??

    Christensen asked 3 months ago

    The meetings are being held in the three locations to provide an overview of the Official Community Plan but also to discuss concerns that are specific to the individual areas.  The meeting in Wilmer discussed policies relative to Wilmer, Dry Gulch and Radium Resort.  The information provided at all three meetings will be available on engage.rdek.bbc.ca shortly, in the interim do not hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions or would like to discuss this further.

  • Why are we updating the Official Community Plan now?

    4 months ago

    The existing Official Community Plan was adopted in 2006.  RDEK Official Community Plans are intended to provide guidance on land development for a five to fifteen year period after which time updates to reflect existing conditions are likely necessary.

    This planning process provides an opportunity to align the OCP policies with the current vision of the community, potential to expand the environmentally sensitive development permit areas and re-visit the economic revitalization of the commercial core of Edgewater. Over the next 12 months we will engage with the community to create policies within the OCP that will guide future development and conservation.


  • What is an Official Community Plan?

    4 months ago

    An Official Community Plan is a long term, strategic planning document.  The OCP will contain objectives and policies related to a range of topics including: residential land use, commercial or resort land use, industrial land use, recreational and environmental values, public safety and transportation.  An OCP provides direction and guidance in decision making for local government with respect to land use preservation or change.
