Welcome to the Virtual Open House!
Growth in the region means plans for the North Central Lakelands Planning District must be updated to recognize all that has changed and prepare for the future.
Planning District members, including the RM of Paddockwood, District of Lakeland, Resort Village of Candle Lake, Resort Village of Elk Ridge and Village of Christopher Lake, have engaged Crosby Hanna & Associates and Wallace Insights to update the Official Community Plan for the District.What’s the NC Lakelands Planning District?
The District Official Community Plan (DOCP) for North Central Lakelands contains policies to guide land use and community development based on community-identified priorities and goals. Policies contained within the DOCP enable communities, property owners, businesses and developers to make informed decisions and contribute positively to vibrancy, safety, self-reliance and sustainability. Topics covered by the updated DOCP will speak to growth management (e.g. residential, commercial, agricultural, etc.), community services and amenities, transportation, public works, environmental assets and opportunities, and risk management.
