The Township of Esquimalt is asking citizens to provide input on key priority areas for community development.

Using an online survey, the township has launched its official community plan (OCP) review process that will assist with planning future community engagement opportunities.

“The objective of this plan is to reflect the collective vision of the community heading into the future,” said Mayor Barb Desjardins. “I encourage residents, businesses and community visitors to provide input so that their vision becomes a part of the document.”

The OCP is the principal guiding document for all municipal initiatives and activities. The plan’s goals, objectives and policies will promote the long-term economic, environmental, social and cultural well-being of the community.

General topics and themes of the OCP include land use, transportation, heritage, parks and recreation, arts and culture, and the environment.

The online survey is available until Nov. 30 at
