The Otter Point, Shirley and Jordan River Resident and Ratepayers Association (OPSRRA), established in 1992, represents about 400 residents from these three small, unincorporated communities west of Sooke, British Columbia

 

Background

Our Official Community Plans (OCP) support a pattern of land use that:

  • Retains both the rural and natural character of the area
  • Protects and enhances the natural environment, its ecosystems and biological diversity
  • Supports planned community development in conjunction with residential, agricultural, forestry, commercial, tourism and recreational activities
Our desire is to maintain the rural and natural character of our communities. Elements of the Capital Regional District's (CRD) Regional Growth Strategy (RGS), a 25 year plan to guide regional growth and planned change for the Greater Victoria area, support this goal. The RGS specifically supports our OCP's vision of land use planning by requiring that:
  • The majority of future housing in the CRD be located in existing urban areas
  • Population increases in rural areas be limited
  • A strong agricultural and resource base be maintained
  • A belt of protected green space be created to define the Western edge of metropolitan Victoria
  • An integrated system of parks, greenways and trails be created to protect important natural areas and link town to country
