The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary is in the process of updating the Official Community Plan (OCP) for Electoral Area ‘D’, which was adopted in 1999. The OCP is a visionary document that contains, among other things, policies to establish minimum parcel sizes required for subdivision and permitted uses on your property.
Your response to this questionnaire will help the steering committee, along with Regional District staff, develop a revised OCP that addresses your hopes and concerns for Area ‘D’.
If you have any questions about this survey, please call Donna Dean, Planner at 250.368.9148 or 800.355.7352, or contact her electronically here.
Participation in this survey is voluntary and your responses will be kept strictly confidential.
This questionnaire is divided into two sections. In the first section we want to learn a bit about you, the respondent. The second section asks for your opinion on a number of topics including natural resources; housing affordability; rural character and future growth; agricultural lands; economic development; park land and trails; sign regulations; heritage; quality of life; the best things about Area ‘D’; things that require improvement; and your 10 year vision. The end of the survey includes blank space where you can provide any additional comments you may have. The survey should take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. The last page includes space where, if you wish, you can fill in your contact information for a chance to win a prize!
