Official Community Plan: Vision Check-In Project

REVY_Future

The City of Revelstoke’s Official Community Plan (OCP) was last updated in 2009. 

OCPs typically plan for 20-years, however, a lot can change and evolve over time and Revelstoke is a prime example of that. Since 2009, the population has grown and shifted, development interests are increasing, and affordability is becoming more challenging.

City Council asked staff to launch an OCP Vision Check-In with you, the community of Revelstoke.

Process Complete! 

The NEW OCP Vision has been supported by Council! On July 14, 2020, Council was presented with the OCP VIsion Chak-In Focus Group report and recommendations to refresh the existing vision and community priorities: 

Vision 

Revelstoke will pursue a sustainable mountain community by balancing environmental, social economic and cultural values within a local, regional and global context. Our rich heritage and stunning natural environment inspire us to be forward thinking, inclusive, resilient and welcoming. We will create a supportive, vibrant community for those that live, work and visit here today and in the future.

 Community Priorities 

To achieve the future we envision, our community priorities are: 

  • A range of housing options and affordability;
  • Environmental protection and stewardship;
  • Climate change action;
  • Personal and community economic growth and stability;
  • A responsive and caring social support system;
  • Opportunities for lifelong learning;
  • Fostering of diverse cultural and spiritual values, and,
  • A range of recreation and activities for residents and visitors.
