Community Planning

Kelowna has been identified as the fastest growing municipality over 122,000 people in British Columbia. Good planning is critical for Kelowna to develop as a sustainable and liveable community. While Kelowna’s boundaries encompass 214 km2 of the beautiful Okanagan Valley, steep hillsides, Okanagan Lake and our agricultural land base all pose unique challenges.  The 2015 Community Trends Report provides an overview of demographic and social trends in Kelowna and highlights successes and potential future challenges in the community.

The Policy & Planning Department develops and champions approval and implementation of long-term plans to advance community sustainability. The department's work is undertaken in consultation with the community, stakeholders and interdepartmental staff.  The Official Community Plan (OCP) is the main guiding document for Kelowna's long term growth.  The OCP is one of numerous Policy and Planning Resources, Policies and Plans.
