Official Community Plan (OCP)
What is an Official Community Plan (OCP) you ask? It’s a policy tool for Council and citizens to manage change in our community. All properties within the City of Rossland are subject to the objectives and policies of the OCP.
The City of Rossland is currently undertaking an update to the Official Community Plan. The 2022 OCP Update ‘Imagine Rossland Future Ready’ will take a 10+ year glimpse into the future of Rossland. It will reflect our vision, values, and plans for change. ‘Imagine Rossland Future Ready’ OCP will help Council in making decisions on important issues such as housing, land use, transportation, our natural environment, economic development, and recreation.
Amendments to the Official Community Plan must be approved by City Council and require a formal application and a Public Hearing. Applicants are advised to contact the Planning Department. All applications for an Official Community Plan amendment are made to the Planning Department and may be referred to any other applicable City departments, Provincial ministries and outside agencies, as necessary.
Contact the Planning Department to discuss potential applications requiring an amendment to the OCP.
