OCP Refresh Project

Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality, located within the traditional territory of the Secwépemc people and a short drive from Kamloops, is one of British Columbia’s most unique communities. With a growing population of full-time residents, the mountain resort community is seeing a period of exceptional growth. Infrastructure to support the growing community of permanent residents as well as recreational visitors is key to the community’s future planning goals.

Sun Peaks developed its first OCP in 2014. This refresh will create a renewed vision for the community, a framework to guide community growth, and certainty to residents, landowners, and the community as it relates to community change. The OCP Refresh will also recognize the Sun Peaks Resort Master Plan Update (2020). This refresh is an opportunity to include changes as required by legislation, and to bring the bylaw inline with development trends suitable for the municipality, focusing on areas such as housing, infrastructure, recreation, and tourism. In addition, this OCP review will also reaffirm the community’s values concerning issues such as land use, development permit areas and guidelines, servicing, amenities, economic development, the municipality’s identity as a resort municipality, aspirations for sustainability, greenhouse gas management, and climate change.

To ensure that the OCP Refresh reflects the values of the municipality as a whole, the community must be consulted in an effective way. A Communications and Engagement Plan will identify when and how the team will engage as many residents, stakeholders, and community members as possible throughout the OCP Refresh process.
