OCP Review Musings

Below is a word cloud, a graphic representation, of the 2002 Salmon Arm OCP created through wordle.net.    The 150 most often used words in the OCP document are represented with relative size indicating frequency of use. I’ll include Vernon’s OCP image in a later posting. What is notable is that the image of Salmon Arm’s current OCP is similar to images of more modern OCPs. That isn’t to say that updating and re-affirming aren’t necessary but the original OCP is a solid document. Abiding by the intent of the OCP apparently is a whole other matter.
