An introductory meeting was held on June 15th, 2017 with approximately 65 people in attendance.
Topics covered at the meeting included an introduction to OCPs, an overview of the expected planning process and a discussion of the intended outcomes. Attendants were asked to participate in two “hands-on” activities with the goal of sharing their vision of the future of their community and identifying important topics that should be addressed in the plan.
A questionnaire intended to provide Moyie and area residents with an initial opportunity to express their views on key land use issues was mailed to all property owners in the plan area with a deadline for responses of July 7th, 2017.
Eighty-two surveys were received with 79% of the responses from the Moyie Lake and Moyie Townsite areas. The percentage of year round versus seasonal/temporary residents who responded was 48% versus 52%. Of the eighty-two surveys received, 55% of the respondents have owned their property for over 20 years.
Once again, we had a great turnout with over 60 people in attendance! The workshop began with a presentation from RDEK staff to provide an overview of the introductory meeting and information received to date, survey results and the objectives of the planning process. Those in attendance worked together on mapping activities related to residential development, commercial development, agriculture, environmental issues and recreational opportunities. Examples of policies that could be included in the draft Official Community Plan were provided for residents to voice either their support or opposition and to provide comments.
The staff presentation, mapping activities, and proposed policies are provided below.
