Community Plan 2033
The City of Castlegar is updating its Community Plan, Zoning Bylaw, and Downtown Design Guidelines. These documents will establish a strong vision for a bright future for Castlegar.
The City of Castlegar’s current Community Plan was completed in 2011 and set the following objectives or BIG IDEAS (OCP, 2011) that have shaped what Castlegar is today.
Throughout May and June 2023, the City of Castlegar engaged with community groups and citizens on what is important to them as we develop the City’s future direction.
Your Feedback is Important!
Your feedback is important in shaping these plans and we want to hear from you to make sure that we understand the type of community you want to live in.
- Phase 1: Listen and Learn
- Phase 2: Emerging Directions
- Phase 3: Policy and Land Use Ideas
- Phase 4: Revising and Final Plan
Why is Community Planning important?
Because it helps the City plan for the future!
A Community Plan looks at what kind of community you want to live in, and the ways we can get there. Looking forward 10 or 20 years, what do you envision for your community? We want you to engage in the vision for your future here – the City’s future!
How does a Community Plan affect me?
A Community Plan shapes the way we live, work, move, and play within the City of Castlegar. It includes policy direction on what is important to you: climate action, housing choice, economic resilience, places to connect, and green space. It helps ensure that there is space and a place for everyone in our community.
