Shaping the future of Penticton

The City is developing a new Official Community Plan to guide development and change in Penticton for the next twenty years. For the past year and a half, the City has been working with the Official Community Plan Task Force and the community to understand the needs and gather input to shape the plan. Based on this work, the City has prepared draft policies for Housing, Transportation & Infrastructure, Arts, Culture & Heritage, Economy, Environment and Agriculture & Food Systems. These draft policies are now available for review and comment.
