Age Friendly Initiatives
The District of 100 Mile House initiated a targeted Age-Friendly Survey in coordination with the South Cariboo Age-Friendly Initiative. The survey was circulated at the South Cariboo Resources Fair on October 23rd and made available on the District website. Results are now available, and will be used to update OCP policies.
The online survey is now closed - thank you for helping the District plan for an age-friendly community!
General Project Update
Since July, the Project Team has been working on a comprehensive analysis of the issues facing 100 Mile House. Further areas where public input will be invited include: secondary suites, development permit areas along Cariboo Highway 97 and for the Downtown, among other topics.

50th Anniversary Celebrations
As part of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations, the Project Team was in 100 Mile House to solicit input for the Official Community Plan (OCP) and Zoning Bylaw Re-Write project from local residents and stakeholders between Thursday July 23rd and Saturday July 25th 2015. A huge thank you to everyone who stopped by the District’s booth to learn more and help contribute to the update process!
Project Advisory Committee
Assisting the District with the project will be an Advisory Committee of seven 100 Mile House residents. Committee members have been selected for their commitment to 100 Mile House and will provide a sounding board for the policy directions of the OCP update and Zoning Bylaw re-write. The Advisory Committee members were appointed by Council on June 16th 2015.
Community support is critical to the success of the project, which features two main elements. Regular project updates will be provided on the District's website and additional public engagement opportunities will occur throughout the fall.
The OCP Update & Zoning Bylaw Re-Write process began in the spring of 2015 and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2016.
What is an Official Community Plan?
The Official Community Plan (OCP) is the primary means of managing growth in the District. The OCP provides guidance for economic, environmental, cultural and social sustainability.
- It is the primary long-term planning document for the District of 100 Mile House
- Key elements consist of general objectives, more specific policies and land use maps
- It guides local government decisions about land use, zoning, development and services
What is a Zoning Bylaw?
- A regulatory document to govern the uses of land within the municipal boundaries of 100 Mile House
- Every property within the District has a zone which details the permitted uses, property setbacks, maximum height, allowable density and minimum lot area for subdivision purposes
