Public hearing helps guide Kent OCP

The District of Kent's new Official Community Plan will go through a final public step next week, before adoption.

The community is invited to take part in a public hearing set for June 24 at the Friendship House in Agassiz, with the possibility of reconvening the hearing the following day if needed.

The OCP has been under review for the last year, and a draft document was discussed at a well-attended open house in November. The District said they received 47 written comments from the public, and six official responses from various levels of government, including the regional district, Fraser Health, the Village of Harrison Hot Springs, ministry of transportation, and two from the Agricultural Land Commission.

Based on those responses and further review, some changes have been made to the OCP. The document is the guiding text that helps council and staff plan land use into the future.

A full copy of the new OCP is available at the District of Kent office during business hours, and online at the District website. It will also be made available at the Agassiz Library. Following the June 24 public hearing, council will read the OCP a third time before adoption.
