UPDATED Future Land Use Designations

UPDATED Policy Recommendations

UPDATED Zoning Bylaw Changes

Engagement results


Residents are invited to attend a series of information sessions throughout different neighbourhoods over the next serval weeks to discuss the future of housing and what building our future will look like across the city.

With big changes mandated by the Province, and recommendations from Council’s OCP Task Force on Housing, Penticton’s Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw must be updated - this is your opportunity to help shape how Penticton grows going forward.

Event details are provided in the Key Dates section. Feedback forms will be collected through to April 14, 2024.

Interactive maps are provided to help illustrate some of the proposed mapping changes. These maps are also available as pdfs in the materials section.

Phase 1 was completed over in the Fall of 2023. The City launched Phase 2 on March 4, 2024.

City Council identified the provision of attainable and accessible housing across the entire housing spectrum as a priority this term. A Task Force on Housing was created to review the policies of the Official Community Plan (OCP) and recommend updates to deliver on this priority. The City recently conducted the 2023 Housing Needs Assessment to understand the need and guide the work of the Task Force. The assessment showed that between 2016 to 2021, Penticton’s annual growth rate was high at 1.9%. If this trend continues, the City may have around 20,000 additional residents and 9,200 additional households by 2046. Residents are invited to follow the work of the Task Force here as it progresses.

Recognizing the impact the potential changes could have on Penticton neighbourhoods, the City is undertaking a communications and engagement program to ensure residents are aware of the work of the Task Force and have the opportunity to participate. The first phase was completed in the fall and a summary is available in the Review the materials section. The second phase will consult the community about the recommendations of the Task Force once they are prepared.
