Moyie and Area Official Community Plan
The planning process for a new Official Community Plan (OCP) for the Moyie Area is nearing completion. The Moyie and Area OCP bylaw was given first and second reading by the Board and will be the subject of public hearing to be held at the Moyie Community Hall on May 21st at 7pm. The OCP is a long range planning document used to guide land use change in the area and it will replace the Moyie and Area Land Use Bylaw which was adopted in 2008.
