Maps & Zoning
Where in the world?
It can be confusing to understand how and why different areas are zoned as they are. The process is fairly straightforward.
In a nutshell, the Official Community Plan (OCP) is created with the input and engagement of citizens of Tofino. It establishes a vision and guidelines for municipal land use planning. The OCP, combined with community sustainability and resilience goals, directly informs the formation of (or changes to) Zoning Bylaws.
The Zoning Bylaws regulate how land, buildings and other structures may be used. They are the end result of the Official Community Planning process.
