We hosted a series of four Open Houses September 16 and 17 to present the draft Steamboat Jubilee Mountain Official Community Plan and share the results of the recent survey. We had approximately 50 people participate over the two days.

The DRAFT Official Community Plan can be found under the Project Information section along with copies of the Open House poster boards and copies of all the map schedules.

A comment period on the draft plan is now open and runs through October 19, 2020. To share your comments or concerns, fill out the comment form on this page. Alternatively, you can email Michele Bates at mbates@rdek.bc.ca.

Following the close of the public comment period, the comments will be considered as the Official Community Plan is finalized. It will then enter the formal bylaw process which includes being presented to the RDEK Board for first and second reading, a public hearing, and finally consideration by the Board for adoption. The formal bylaw process is expected to begin in November or December.

Project Goal:

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.

    What about Radium DryGulch??

    Christensen asked over 1 year 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?

    over 1 year 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?

    over 1 year 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.
