The District of Lantzville is updating our Official Community Plan (OCP) to help set directions for the community over the next 20 years. At the same time, we are also developing a Water Master Plan to guide decision-making for our water service. Your input is central to defining what that future will be!
Results of the Community-wide Survey are being Tabulated
The Community-wide Survey closed on Friday, April 7, 2017. We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to everyone who took the time to complete a survey – your responses will provide valuable input to the Draft OCP Update and Draft Water Master Plan. Recent numbers indicate that over 500 surveys have been submitted.
The submitted surveys are now with the independent survey firm that is tabulating the results. Results reporting is expected to be ready for presentation in early May. The optional contest draw will be completed next week, with winners of the $100 Gift Certificate to the Lantzville Pub and the $100 Gift Certificate to Riso Restaurant notified before April 21, 2017.
Even if you did not have an opportunity to complete a survey, there are still opportunities to provide your input during the next step of the OCP and Water Master Plan process.
The project team will be using the results from the survey to develop the Draft OCP Update and Draft Water Master Plan. These draft plans will be discussed in a community event in the last half of May 2017. Please stay tuned for an announcement with a time and date for this event.
A series of 5 video shorts were released with the Community-wide survey to summarize the 2005 Lantzville Official Community Plan (OCP), touch on public input received through the fall of 2016, and explain some preliminary directions in response.

Kitchen Table Meetings - November 2016 to January 2017
From November through January, several Lantzville residents opened their doors to neighbours and facilitated in-depth discussions about future ideas for Lantzville. Thank you to those who hosted and participated. These meetings provided a wealth of information with participants delving deeply into ideas and discussions for their neighbourhoods and the community. Input from these meetings has been used to develop short-listed land use and water servicing options and preliminary policy directions for the community.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at Minetown Day and those who took the time to complete a community input questionnaire, share your ideas on the big map, or paint your Lantzville of the future. We appreciated hearing your thoughts and concerns about the future of Lantzville.
You told us:
Lantzville's quiet, small-town character and friendly atmosphere are important
Many would consider supporting some growth in Lantzville, as long as it is gradual and sustainable and didn't change the existing character
Energizing the Village Core is a priority for the future
The environment and the waterfront are important and need to be protected
The future of water servicing is an essential question that needs to be resolved
There are many ideas about community amenities and services and how they can be improved
