Directors adopt plan
Powell River Regional District directors adopted the official community plan (OCP) for Area C at the April 25 board meeting. Directors made no comments about the plan.
The regional district started reviewing the existing OCP that encompasses both Area B and Area C in 2008. After the review stalled, staff recommended that there should be two separate OCPs for each area.
Directors adopted the Area B OCP at the March board meeting.
