The City of Swift Current’s Planning & Growth Development Division is seeking input from the community regarding the drafted Preliminary Policies document for the City’s Official Community Plan.

 

Information from the document was recently presented at a Public Open House, held on March 15 at the Main Street Swift Current office. The materials presented at this Open House are now available on the City’s website at www.swiftcurrent.ca/ocp, below Phase III of the Work Plan section.

“The Official Community Plan is, of course, a plan that belongs to the entire community,” explained Michael Ruus, the City’s General Manager of Planning & Growth Development. “The more engaged our community members become in the process of updating this plan, the better the final results will reflect the wants and needs of the entire community. We encourage every community member to take a few minutes to review the presentation and share their thoughts with us.”

The current Municipal Development Plan (Official Community Plan) was adopted in 2003, and outlines the current physical, environmental, economic, social and cultural development policies of the City. This document has been amended to incorporate new development policy as our City has grown in recent years.
