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!

The Community-wide Survey has been Launched
Mailbox Icon The Official Community Plan Update & Water Master Plan Community-wide Survey will be released the week of March 13th. Survey packages will be arriving to households and property owners in Lantzville via Canada Post. Please watch your mailbox. When you receive your survey, please take some time to provide input for your household, then return it in the postage-paid, pre-addressed envelope by Friday, April 7th.

The Community-wide Survey is an important opportunity for you to help determine key planning directions for Lantzville's future. The input gathered through this survey will be used to inform the Draft OCP Update and the Draft Water Master Plan. Respondents are guaranteed complete anonymity. Responses will be compiled by an independent survey firm and will be presented to the District later this spring.

Before completing your survey, we encourage you to view the following online videos that consider the community's vision for a semi-rural community: [click here to view videos]

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

What's the Process?
The process for each plan involves a series of key steps:
  1. LISTEN to the community to build an understanding about issues, opportunities, and ideas
  2. CONSIDER a range of potential options that could be feasible for Lantzville
  3. FOCUS on the technically feasible options with the greatest community support and merit
  4. DRAFT these options into recommended directions and review them with the community
  5. FINALIZE the plans which will act as strategic guiding documents for the future
The diagram below shows the stages of the process and identifies opportunities for you to be involved.
