CURRENT ENGAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN AND ZONING BYLAW
The City of Moose Jaw has begun the process to update its Official Community Plan and Moose Jaw residents are invited to get #NotoriouslyEngaged and provide input along the way.
What is an Official Community Plan?
An Official Community Plan (OCP) is recognized by the Provincial Government as a statement of Moose Jaw’s long-term vision for growth and development. It reflects community values and establishes a framework for investment.
The OCP bylaw is adopted by Council as required by The Planning & Development Act, 2007.
What is a Zoning Bylaw?
A Zoning Bylaw implements the policies of the OCP. Its purpose is to:
- establish permitted, prohibited and discretionary land uses by assigning zoning districts;
- outline development standards; and
- identify permit requirements.

The City of Moose Jaw has received a draft of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan, and residents are invited to provide feedback.
Since April of 2022, the City of Moose Jaw Parks and Recreation Department and EDS Group have engaged user groups and residents the development of a 10-year Parks and Recreation Master Plan. The community input received will help prioritize and strategically guide City programming and infrastructure development/renewal in the future.
The final community consultation phase involves review of the draft Parks and Recreation Master Plan and recommendations and receive feedback.
Click here to view the draft plan and to submit any final feedback you may have before it is provided to City Council for adoption in February, 2023.
