Village of Harrison seeks community plan feedback

Survey will update a 13-year-old community planning guide

The Village of Harrison Hot Springs wants your feedback.

The village announced a complete review of its current Official Community Plan (OCP) via a survey to be completed by residents.

The OCP is a guide used by village staff and council to assist in decisions made for land development and on the municipal government level.

“Input from the Village’s residents and business owners is strongly encouraged on the current review of the OCP,” Village staff said in a statement.

The current OCP was created back in 2007, making it 13 years old and prompting the village to seek updated information from residents and business owners. The vision statement of the OCP is divided into 10 goals, which range from promoting tourism and recreation in the area to protecting environmental assets such as the lake, mountains and air quality and the management of traffic and transportation.

In the survey, residents will give out basic information and have the opportunity to review the goals and the vision statement itself to determine whether or not the goals are still relevant. They will also have the chance to list different aspects of the community they currently value most as well as what needs to change in the future. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
