Official Community Plan
The Official Community Plan (OCP) is a provincially-mandated regulatory document and set of high-level plans and policies, such as land use designations that guide land use planning, social, economic, and environmental policies, and civic infrastructure investments.
Whistler's OCP was adopted May 7, 2013.
The goals, objectives, and policies contained within the OCP are a reflection of the extensive input received from Whistler's citizens and resort community stakeholders over a 20-month period that began in the spring of 2010.
The OCP is about regulating and implementing shared community directions. These directions will guide Whistler's development and meet its anticipated needs over the next five years and beyond in support of our Whistler2020 vision to be the premier mountain resort community – as we move toward sustainability.

Whistler2020 and the OCP
The OCP is an important tool, which will help to implement Whistler2020, Whistler's community sustainability plan. The OCP will allow Whistler to answer important questions about its future.
The OCP doesn't replace Whistler2020; the two documents work together. Whistler2020 is Whistler's highest-level policy and guide for the OCP update.
