Moose Jaw ready to create a new Official Community Plan

The City of Moose Jaw is kicking off the process of updating its Official Community Plan (OCP) this weekend.

An OCP is basically a statement or plan that is recognized by the provincial government on what the city’s long-term vision is for growth and development. The plan will showcase the city’s values and sets a framework for investment.

“Quality of life is notoriously high in Moose Jaw, which we’ve highlighted in our ‘Get A Life’ economic development campaign,” says Moose Jaw Mayor Clive Tolley.

“As Moose Jaw continues to grow, change and develop, it is important that our Official Community Plan continue to reflect a consensus of our residents’ views and interests. We ask all Moose Javians to get engaged with the OCP process to ensure that everyone has a say and can be heard as we create this positive plan for our future growth and success.”

The OCP bylaw is adopted by Council as required by The Planning & Development Act, 2007

Moose Jaw is putting on the first public engagement interactive display tomorrow from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Kinsmen Sportsplex.

There will be several opportunities for the public to give their input on the OCP throughout 2023.

The interactive display will be at a number of locations throughout this winter and the schedule as well as more information on the project can be found here.
