OCP review

OCP Survey Round 3 raw data

Below is the raw data from Round 3 of the OCP survey:

Round 3 raw results

Hillary Ward (our APC Chair) was kind enough to whip up a graphical analysis in the statistical package R:  The R code is included for any budding data scientists.

Histogram matrix of results

Hillary used a more sophisticated plotting package, so her histograms look slightly different than the ones I prepared for the OCP open houses. They tell the same story either way, however.

OCP Survey Round 2 Summary Video

I put together a very quick video describing the (surprising) results from Round 2 of the OCP survey.  The information in the video forms part of our preparation for the Round 3 survey.  People have told me it is much easier to complete the survey questions once they understand the different growth scenarios.

Link to the video is here (roughly 30 minutes)

Note that the video is based on the community meeting held in November. The content is very similar.

Round 2 Information Session: 29 November at West Bench School

The RDOS will host a public information session at West Bench Elementary on Wednesday, November 29, from 7-8:30 PM.  The purpose of the information session is to:

  1. Ensure residents understand the scenarios used in Round 2 of the OCP survey
  2. Present some preliminary results from Round 2 (there may be some surprises!)
  3. Answer any questions residents may have.
  4. Set the stage for Round 3 of the OCP survey.

 

Update 28 Nov 2017: I have included a draft of the presentation slides for the meeting

West Bench: Traditionalists versus Industrialists

Just in case you think the stakes are low in an OCP review, I thought I should make everyone aware of an emerging controversy on the West Bench: Traditionalists versus Industrialists. Although both views are complex and serious, I can sketch them as follows:

Area F Official Community Plan Review

This thread is used to hold information about the 2017 Area F Official Community Plan review. The main RDOS site also has a section dedicated to the review: Area F OCP Review

The purpose of the thread on this site is to provide a more informal mechanism for sharing information, voicing concerns, and finding out what is going on.  For example, this site allows you to post comments (the main RDOS site does not).  You will see directly below this message a hierarchy of links to information (as it evolves and becomes available).

An OCP review is a long process.  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments as we go along.
