Get involved with OCP!

Get involved with the OCP!

We have exciting news for citizens of Grand Forks! The City is officially launching the process to update its Official Community Plan (OCP). The OCP affects all of you! Whether you know it or not, the policies in the OCP guide how Grand Forks grows and functions at the highest level.

As we launch the Official Community Plan update, it is important to remember that this is a community led initiative. We want to make sure that you have an opportunity to have your say during this important process. Below we have outlined a few different ways to have your voice heard.

We are now launching our Community Circles Kits, an interactive booklet designed to allow community members to engage with the OCP update from the comfort of their home. The kits explain the background behind the OCP and the different pieces that make a complete community, and allow for feedback via debate questions, survey, and community mapping exercise. Our goal is to get these kits out to the community far and wide, so please share with your friends, family, colleagues, and networks!

Drop in to see us in June at several in-person engagement events. We will be engaging with the community and its members from June 14 – June 16. Join us at the following events:

  1. Farmer’s Market on Tuesday June 15 during the day
  2. Booth at Location TBD, watch for an update!
  3. Big Ideas Reveal @ City Park the evening of Wednesday June 16.

Don’t forget to bring your mask! We will be following Covid-19 safety protocols at all our events. Updates on our engagement schedule, including times and locations, can be found here.

We look forward to hearing all your innovative ideas!
