Notice of Proposed OCP Amendment


Notice of Proposed Amendment to Official Community Plan

Lands within North East Comox have been unable to develop due to downstream flooding liabilities. The area which lays downstream from North East Comox has been a historical flood plain and regularly floods with current storm water conditions and mitigations.

Town conducted the public consultation in late 2020 on options for implementation of the North East Comox Stormwater Management Plan. On January 20, 2021, staff reported to Council on the results of public consultation for implementation of the North East Comox Stormwater Management Plan.
PR 21-1 REPORT

Council directed staff to prepare North East Comox Stormwater Management Plan implementation bylaws for consideration based on Option 3, which would allow property owners, either individually or jointly, to design and construct detention ponds at time of development. The proposed Official Community Plan amendment bylaw is to facilitate the North East Comox Stormwater Management Plan.
