The consultation process has launched for the review of Mission’s Official Community Plan.

The OCP provides the long-term vision in shaping the future of the community. The plan is developed by the community toidentify social, economic, environmental and land use principles and articulates the goals and policies of the community ontopics such as:

Housing and density

Neighbourood character

Economic development


Parks and green spaces

Community facilities.

“Mission’s OCP was last reviewed in 2008, and since that time the district has grown and changed in many ways,” said MayorRandy Hawes.

“This is an important tool for guiding how we grow as a community and I hope everyone in Mission makes the time to take part in developing the vision for our future.”

Gina MacKay, manager of long range planning and special projects, is leading the OCP review and said the consultation is “important because community participation ensures the plan meets the needs of the citizens of Mission, now and in the future.”

The public is invited to take part in the OCP process and “Make it Your Mission” by visiting where you can take part in an online community survey.

A public open house takes place January 13, and includes a speakers-corner video booth and facilitated community visioning and urban design workshops. Special workshops are also scheduled for early January, and more information is available at
