Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw 2024-21 & Zoning Bylaw 2024-22

Public Hearing Date:
Monday June 3, 2024 at 6pm
Attend in person at Penticton City Hall, Council Chambers, or via Zoom

Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw No. 2024-21 is a housing-focused amendment to Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw No. 2019-08 to tactfully respond to faster than anticipated population growth, evolving housing needs in the community, implement the local OCP Housing Task Force recommendations, and align with recent Provincial housing legislation.

Zoning Bylaw 2024-22 is a comprehensive update to the Zoning Bylaw proposing to implement recent Provincial housing initiatives and the local Official Community Plan (OCP) Housing Task Force recommendations. Given the extent of the proposed updates, staff are proposing a new Zoning Bylaw to repeal and replace Zoning Bylaw No. 2023-08.
