Help shape your community. Get involved with the Official Community Plan update.

What is an Official Community Plan?

Mission’s Official Community Plan (OCP) is a vision for the future and a roadmap for shaping the look and feel of the city as it grows and accommodates new residents and development. It ultimately helps guide decisions regarding the location of new housing, commercial, employment, parks, trails and other land uses. It will determine how people can get around whether it be by bike, walking and car. 

The OCP provides guidance for Council, residents, developers and all those who help build our city, ensuring that decisions align with resident and Council priorities and a clear and transparent future vision of the community that all groups work towards.

How Does the City Use the OCP?

The OCP is a community and Council plan that will tell us what important challenges and opportunities the City is facing. The OCP is a high-level document that considers many different parts of how our city works, from roads to parks to healthcare to education and beyond. 

Engagement Process

As a community centric plan, public input is critical, so we want to hear from you! 

The OCP Update is a year-long planning and community engagement process with several opportunities at all project development phases for the public to be heard. Please tell us what you think and help shape the future of Mission. All input received will be reviewed to help determine the priorities and directions of the OCP Update.
