Current Engagement Opportunities


Draft Vision, Goals and Growth Directions

The Town of Ladysmith has identified a draft vision, goals and growth directions for the new Official Community Plan (OCP) and is now seeking the public’s feedback as we prepare to move forward with the creation of this important policy document. 

An OCP is intended to help manage growth and development in a way that meets community goals. The document can influence how people experience their town, including where you live, shop, recreate and as well as your transportation choices. 

The community-wide engagement for the OCP Review has so far involved participation and input from hundreds of people voicing their opinions on the future of Ladysmith.

We appreciate everyone who has taken time to respond to surveys and attend in-person events.  

Please review the draft vision statement, goals and growth directions by clicking in the document linked to the right.
