Open House & Community Survey + Draft Official Community Plan & Zoning Bylaw

Good day,

We need to hear from you!

The Town of Port McNeill has a draft Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning Bylaw based on what we heard from leadership and the community during the engagement process over the last year and a half.

On September 28th, staff and Council will be outside of the IGA with a survey to discuss key topics and you can enter to win one of two iPads (draw October 5th) at the event. This will be followed up on September 29th with an Open House at the Community Hall.. The open house is an opportunity in a forum where you can review the proposed OCP and Zoning bylaw changes, ask questions, have discussion, and provide your comments.

The OCP is the long-term vision for this community regarding use of land, community facilities, infrastructure, environment, and more. The Final Draft OCP and Zoning Bylaw can be found on the Town’s Webpage: This plan will guide future growth and development in a way that meets the community’s vision:

Port McNeill will continue to provide an atmosphere of well-being. A community that encourages healthy living as is a hometown of choice for families, entrepreneurs, and innovative industry, where people wish to grow and retire. The Town provides an environment and community where people can succeed. This is nurtured through the rural lifestyle, access to nature and a sustainable environment. It is a place that fosters Individual potential and embraces new possibilities. Here we can pursue our dreams for generations to come.

Key topics addressed in the OCP with policies to support the vision, future growth and changes include:
