Official Community Plan: Policy Update Project


Official Community Plan: Policy Update Project

On July 14, 2020 City of Revelstoke Council endorsed a refreshed vision and priorities to guide the development of the OCP:


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.

Timeline + Process 

Now that the Vision and Priorities have been confirmed for the community, the Development Services department is beginning the OCP policy review process. A Focus Group has been supported by Council to work with staff and provide feedback and recommendations. One of the first tasks will be to develop a public engagement strategy. Meetings with the Focus Group will begin in August 2020.

The general timeline and process is as follows:OCP Process
