Kelowna's 2040 Official Community Plan

How our city grows is shaped by the 2040 Official Community Plan (OCP). The 2040 OCP provides a policy framework for Council by addressing issues such as housing, transportation, infrastructure, parks, economic development and the natural and social environment. It's a plan that sets a strategic course for the next 20 years as to how our city should grow, prioritizing areas, decisions and policies that our citizens have told us they want to focus on through Imagine Kelowna and OCP engagement opportunities. The OCP works with the 2040 Transportation Master Plan to connect people and places – together, they help deliver on our goals of a more sustainable, equitable future.
