The City of Cranbrook is developing a new Official Community Plan (OCP) bylaw. The City’s existing OCP was adopted in 2006, and Cranbrook has undergone significant change since then. The City of Cranbrook will be working together with the Project Team from Urban Systems Ltd. to develop a new OCP that reflects the current needs of the community and guides its growth and development over the next 20 years.

Every municipality in British Columbia is required to have an Official Community Plan (OCP) under the Local Government Act. An OCP guides the growth and development of a community. It provides direction and guidance on items relating to land use, transportation, housing, environment, infrastructure, parks, agriculture, economic development, art and culture, and more to give shape and overall function to a municipality.

We Need Your Input – Get Involved!

The Our Path to Cranbrook 2042 OCP is our main tool for determining how these different elements will show up, change and shape our community over the next 20 years. That’s why we need your input!

As part of the OCP update process, the City would like to uncover what the community’s values and priorities are for the future so that these can be reflected in the document. The community’s vision for the future will be used as a starting point for formulating policy direction that is included in the new OCP.

We have designed a community engagement program to co-create this OCP with our residents and important stakeholders.

First, we will work with you to set the overall tone and vision for Cranbrook over the next 20 years through a series of exercises. Next, we will pull out the key elements that you tell us are important and will dig in a little deeper with you on the things like transportation, housing, parks, and the environment. Finally, we will create a draft of our new OCP which we will present to the community for final feedback and comments. For full details you can review the complete OCP Timeline.

So what do you say? Are you ready to help design Our Path to Cranbrook 2042? Check out our Get Involved page and have a say in your community.
