Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

By 2040, we can expect another 45,000 residents to call Kelowna home. We’re in the final phase of updating our Official Community Plan (OCP), the document that will guide how we grow over the next 20 years.

Following a widespread and multi-year engagement process, the draft 2040 OCP was presented to the public for input from January-March.

Thank you for your participation!

The draft was shaped by a series of engagement opportunities, beginning with the development of our community vision, Imagine Kelowna. This final phase of OCP engagement built on dialogue with the public to date and explored a range of topics specific to how our community grows. We asked residents to share their feedback and help bring our community's vision of a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive Kelowna to life.
