Open House for Area H Official Community Plan
The Draft Plan is Ready for Your Input!

The Official Community Plan (OCP) for Electoral Area H has been drafted and is ready for community feedback. Area H residents are invited to learn about the proposed changes to the Plan and to provide comments at an Open House on Wednesday, June 28, from 2:00 pm to 7:30 pm at Lighthouse Community Hall (240 Lions Way, Qualicum Bay).

"Over the last 18 months, we have heard from Area H residents that safe, walkable streets, adequate housing and attracting young families to the area are key issues the OCP should address," said Bill Veenhof, RDN Chair and Electoral Area H Director. "The revised Plan reflects these priorities and I look forward to hearing what residents have to say about the proposed changes."

The draft Plan and a document summarizing the changes are available on the OCP project webpage. Comments can be submitted at the Open House, through the project webpage or by contacting the RDN directly. An RDN planner also holds office hours every Tuesday from 9:15 am to 12:00 pm upstairs at Magnolia Court, 6996 Island Highway West, Bowser.
