    Since the spring of 2021, 22 community members (OCP Focus Group) have worked with CIty staff to:

    • Review the Revelstoke Sustainability Plan,
    • Review the outcomes from the Vision and Community Priorities public engagement, and;
    • Ask the community to provide their thoughts on OCP topics online, at Farmer’s Markets, and by engaging with various community groups (Soup ‘n a Smile, the Food Bank, classrooms, and the college ESL class.)

    The work of the Focus Group resulted in the OCP Framing Document - a high-level table of contents for the OCP Update.

    The team continues to seek feedback from the community and would like to hear your thoughts on the Framing the OCP document. You can provide your input HERE, or at one of our Pop-Up Engagement Activities located in the community.

    Wednesday, September 8 Outside City Hall 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.
    Wednesday, September 15 Save-On Foods 3:00 - 6:00 p.m.
