The town with no people wants to adopt an Official Community Plan (OCP).
The Jumbo Glacier Mountain Resort Municipality’s (JGMRM) OCP is "intended to reflect the long term vision of the community.” Whose vision? What community? The JGMRM has no residents, an appointed mayor and council and is funded by $200,000 of BC taxpayer dollars every year.
Please speak out against this OCP without a community. Since Jumbo has no citizens, it falls to all of us to oppose this plan and this affront to local democracy and land-use. OCPs are intended to guide a community, not a corporate development.

Join us at the public hearing and present your concerns to the council in person. You don’t even have to speak – your presence alone will speak volumes. If you’re coming, why not throw in a sign or two.
Tuesday, June 16, 9:30 am at the Village of Radium Hot Springs Council Chambers, 4836 Radium Blvd
