The Rural Comox Valley Official Community Plan (OCP), Bylaw No. 337, is an expression of shared community values and goals.
It contains a set of policies that inform community members, developers, real estate agents, approving authorities and elected officials of the goals and objectives of rural residents of the Comox Valley, together with policy direction about what types of future development are acceptable. The OCP, along with the Comox Valley Regional Growth Strategy (RGS), is a principal legislative tool for guiding future growth and change in the three electoral areas of the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD).
As part of the development of the OCP, the CVRD and multiple stakeholders developed the Comox Valley Transportation Road Network Plan, which seeks to shift future travel patterns towards sustainable alternatives. Key recommendations in the plan include investing in better cycling and pedestrian infrastructure, building more connected road networks, providing for more safety at identified locations, and extending the transit service.
