Official Community Plan Change

We have been following the development of the City of Langley Sustainability Charter since February of this year when the City hosted its first open house. The City's Official Community Plan (OCP) will have an amendment bylaw introduced for public hearing on May 31, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. at Langley City Hall. I will be there to show my support. The proposed changes to the bylaw will include GHG reduction targets (16% below 2007 level) derived from the City’s new Community and Corporate Energy & Greenhouse Gas Emissions Plans. It will also include reference to the City's Sustainability Charter which is still being worked on. 16% is a modest number, but the local government doesn't have control over transportation which as the single largest contibutor to GHG emissions in BC.

You can download a copy of the OCP changes from our document archive.
