OCP update Next Steps:

  • Continue consultations with the Squamish Nation and Lil'wat Nation, Provincial agencies and the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD).
  • Integrate input from consultations into OCP Goals, Objectives, Policies and Development Permit Area Guidelines.
  • Second reading by RMOW Council will take place in early 2012.

Led by the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW), the OCP update has been a collaborative process, with the community involved at every step of the way. This OCP will create an updated policy implementation tool in support of our Whistler2020 vision:

"To be the premier mountain resort community – as we move toward sustainability"
