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 is ready for public feedback.

We want to hear from you

The draft has been shaped by a series of engagement opportunities, beginning with the development of our community vision, Imagine Kelowna. This final phase of OCP engagement builds on dialogue with the public to date and will explore a range of topics specific to how our community grows. Share your feedback and help bring our community's vision of a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive Kelowna to life – review the draft and tell us what you think!


Ways to get involved


Fill out the survey

The survey covers a range of topics, but you can answer as many or few questions as you like. Participants can enter for a chance to win 1 of 5 Local Gift Cards for $100!

Note: If you're planning on attending a virtual focus group in February-March, we recommend waiting until afterward to complete this survey.

The deadline for online survey submissions is March 21, 2021.



Register for a virtual focus group

The OCP team will present on three themes: climate action and environmental protection, Urban Centres and residential infill, agricultural lands and suburban neighbourhoods. You'll have the opportunity to ask questions and share your thoughts on a number of key directions related to these themes.



Take part in the discussion forums

Not able to attend a focus group? No problem – you can use the discussion tool on this platform to share your feedback and see comments from others. The discussion forms will take place during the same weeks as the virtual focus groups.

In the coming weeks, we will be offering a feedback station at City Hall where you can learn about the draft plan and leave comments in person.


Your feedback – along with technical data, stakeholder input, and existing policies – will help us further refine the draft 2040 OCP. The plan will be finalized following public engagement and is expected to be presented to Council for endorsement later this year.
