Welcome to our Virtual Open House for the Moose Jaw Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw

Help Get A Plan For Life in Moose Jaw

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. It’s purpose is to:

  • establish permitted, prohibited and discretionary land uses by assigning zoning districts;
  • outline development standards; and
  • identify permit requirements.

Moose Jaw’s values and aspirations are captured in the OCP and implemented through the Zoning Bylaw (and other bylaws and policies). The City of Moose Jaw is updating this planning framework by engaging the community. Here are 2 short videos to introduce the project.
