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.
