OCP Update

During the Official Community Plan process we will need to explore key areas of development. The Eco Alliance has done the research and reasoning to propose approaches to important details of the OCP under review. The need for preservation of our key environmental treasures, such as Crippen Park and Cape Roger Curtis among other things. There is a need for some affordable housing, and the global goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, so we address those. The governance model within the Islands Trust can give us a mandate to make sure we remain a semi rural community. The culture of Bowen Island needs to be considered, etc.
