Attention Roberts Creek! Here’s your chance to get involved in your community. The Roberts Creek Official Community Plan Committee (OCPC) election for committee members is Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Roberts Creek Hall. 

The OCPC is an elected group of 11 volunteers from Roberts Creek who meet on a monthly basis to ensure that the Roberts Creek Official Community Plan (OCP) is being followed and that it continues to meet the needs of the citizens of Roberts Creek.   

Roberts Creek is the only community in B.C. with its own OCP committee. Meetings offer a great chance to help shape your community. 

OCPs are fluid by nature. The OCPC receives and responds to referrals from the Sunshine Coast Regional District Planning Department that may involve amending our OCP, issues of rezoning or development, creation of affordable or alternative housing, transportation improvements, or environmental protection.  Any Creeker can ask to be on the monthly agenda and bring their concerns to the OCPC for discussion or support.   

Roberts Creek SCRD Director Kelly Backs or his Alternate Candace Woods will be attending OCPC meetings as our direct link to the SCRD. Meetings are currently held by Zoom on the third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. 

Anyone who has been a resident of Roberts Creek for at least one year may run as a candidate and any resident of Roberts Creek can vote.   

Now that the Roberts Creek Hall has an excellent air filtration system, the election will be held in the Hall on Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. Attend the election as a candidate or to vote! For more information about the OCPC email chairperson Elaine Futterman: [email protected].
