The Official Community Plan (OCP) for The Resort Municipality of Whistler

Phased Approach

The Official Community Plan update process uses a phased approach, designed to create as much community engagement as possible. During and after each phase, staff will report the results of community input to Whistler Council, thereby shaping the updated Official Community Plan.

If your time is limited, the phased approach allows you to choose the best time to check in and have your say. Getting involved with the OCP Update is easier than you think. Click here to get involved!
