Phase two consultation reports are now available. The following two reports include summary findings as well appendices including more detailed public and stakeholder feedback.

Developed over the summer with the input of the public and stakeholders, the draft Vision and Goals for the OCP and land use concept map provide a conceptual draft overview of where Courtenay is heading over the next 10 years and beyond. Highly recommended reading prior to the neighbourhood walkshops and virtual workshops!
