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.

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. We asked residents to share their feedback and help bring our community's vision of a vibrant, sustainable and inclusive Kelowna to life.
