The existing OCP vision is lengthy and while it covers many of the basic tenants of community planning, it no longer projects a strong sense of place/identity for the District of Peachland. Peachland is a small community with limited resources, and it should have a clear vision to guide how those resources are invested. How do we distinguish ourselves from other communities? Assessing the existing vision in terms of current community values and priorities, and ensuring that the new/updated vision is realistic based on the financial constraints of a small municipality, will be a key first step in developing a strong identity. With a clearly defined vision and understanding of current needs and priorities, staff and consultants can begin to draft goals and policies for the updated OCP that will support informed decision making on future growth and land use.
