Municipalities in British Columbia have the authority to develop an Official Community Plan (OCP) under the Local Government Act. An OCP guides the growth and development of a community over the long term. It provides direction on land use, transportation, housing, environment, infrastructure, parks, agriculture, economic development, arts and culture, climate action and more. 

In addition to the summer events, Burnaby residents had other opportunities to provide input through an online survey during the spring and early summer. Future engagement phases will include additional opportunities for residents to have a say on the OCP.
