Official Community Plan (OCP)

Engagement Events | Support Documents



The Town of Osoyoos is updating the Official Community Plan (OCP) and we need your input.

What is an OCP you ask? It’s a guiding document that’s common to every municipality in British Columbia. Choose Your Osoyoos will take a 20+ year glimpse into the future of Osoyoos. It will reflect our vision, values, and plans for change.

Choose Your Osoyoos will help Council in making decisions on important issues such as housing, land use, transportation, our natural environment, economic development, and recreation.

A community vision cannot be created without consulting our community. So we’re asking you to show up, participate, and tell us what makes Osoyoos the best place to live in BC!

Town of Osoyoos Housing Needs Report

As part of the update to the Official Community Plan, the Town of Osoyoos initiated a housing needs assessment to better understand the current and future housing needs in the community. The Housing Needs Report was used to inform the Town’s OCP and will be referred to further when the Town updates additional policies and regulations.

The report is a collection of key data regarding Osoyoos’ population, households and housing, and anticipated housing and household growth. The project also incorporates stakeholder perspectives acquired through a questionnaire and brings together key findings from the quantitative and qualitative research into a comprehensive gap analysis.
