Citizen’s and Community Advisory Committees Joint Meeting - March 2012
On March 27, a special joint meeting of the OCP Advisory Committees was held to identify shared values and goals of the community. Committee members, members of Council, City staff and the public participated in an engaging workshop facilitated by Stina Brown. As a graphic facilitator, Stina helped the group form a clear future vision for Parksville and for the OCP. The "common vision" came together in a conversation and collage. The collage was made up of participant’s own images, stories and best hopes for Parksville as told on postcards. As well, a graffiti board was created that highlighted what people saw for the best future of Parksville.
The first in a series of public events was held at Oceanside Place in March. This information session provided an opportunity for the public to review the process to date and provide feedback on where residents wish to see growth and development, transportation options and action on climate change. The information panels used at Oceanside Place by Urban Systems are included here.
In February 2011, as part of the Official Community Plan review, many organizations and businesses were invited to participate in an "Urban Magnets Workshop".
The workshop looked at ways the City could assist in becoming more vibrant and economically successful by celebrating and emphasizing the current activities and culture that now exists in our community. Staff invited more than 100 members of the community who were identified with groups or businesses associated with some of the activities identified, such as cycling and outdoor recreation and sports, the beach (activities, culture and business), dogs, food, automobiles, arts and theatre and spas, etc). Comments received from workshop participants are included here.
