|Official Community plan (OCP)|
(Aka The OCP)
Prodded by concerned Savary Islanders, in the late 1990s the Powell River Regional District began to consider an official community plan for the island. Draft OCPs were vetted in 2001, 2002, and 2006.
Finally, on February 22, 2007 the Savary Island Official Community Plan, Bylaw No. 403, 2006 was adopted by the PRRD.
According to the document, the OCP's main goal is to maintain the Island's unique character and lifestyle while protecting its groundwater resources and its sensitive ecosystems.
