Welcome to the source for information about the Fairmont Hot Springs & Columbia Lake Area Official Community Plan (OCP) Process. The current Fairmont Hot Springs OCP was adopted in 2004 and has been amended 27 times. The Fairmont Hot Springs & Columbia Lake Area OCP process will engage the community on current land use issues and result in the creation of land use policies which reflect a current vision for the future. An updated policy framework will also promote greater certainty in land use decision making by the Regional District Board.
Open House & Comment Period
Over the fall and winter of 2016/17 we’ve been taking the information you provided us through the survey, community planning workshops, and stakeholder meetings and put together a draft Fairmont Hot Springs and Columbia Lake Area OCP. Now it’s time to share the draft OCP with you and get your feedback.
We will be hosting an Open House on April 13th from 7 to 9 pm at the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort where we will hand out copies of the document, discuss parts of the plan and answer questions.
