100s give input in ExpOCP

A total of 800 residents gave feedback at a recent three-day expo about the official community, called 'ExpOCP,' according to the City of Penticton.

"We are very pleased with the outcome of the expo and the quality of the input we have gathered," special projects manager Ben Johnson said. "We were especially pleased to see the wide range of participation."

The city collected more than 120 pages of comments during the expo regarding the economy, housing, transportation and other key topics.

With that event, the city said more than 2,200 people have now provided input about the OCP, which will "set the direction of the community" for the next 25 years.


The city will now be focusing on drafting policies for the OCP from input received, which will be presented to residents in the spring.

"Residents will start to see how their feedback is reflected in the direction of the plan," Johnson said.

The city's two-month lease at 249 Westminster Avenue will conclude at the end of February, after hosting close to 20 community engagement events at the site.

More information on the next phase of community engagement is expected to be available soon on shapeyourcitypenticton.ca.
