THANK YOU for your ideas to help frame the OCP

We asked you this question:

"What topics are important to address for the OCP? Share best practices or examples with the Focus Group."

Here’s what we know so far:

We received 66 unique ideas online and engaged directly with the community at the Farmer’s Market, Soup and a Smile, Revelstoke Parent group, the Food Bank, and in several high school classrooms.

What We Heard Report

The project team is currently working on a What We Heard Report to capture your thoughts and summarize what you said. Your ideas will help the Focus Group and determine what main ideas need to be addressed in the OCP.

Later this Fall, when the policy review work begins, these ideas will also inform those policy areas that will need to be considered.
