Victoria, City

Context Statement: The City of Victoria Urban Forest Master Plan is one of several plans that helps to realize the directions of the City’s 2012 Official Community Plan (OCP) (http://www.shapeyourfuturevictoria.ca/). The Urban Forest Master Plan supports the Official Community Plan vision and several of its goals, notably that “Victoria’s urban environment, including urban forests, and public and private green spaces support healthy and diverse ecosystems.” The comprehensive sustainability emphasis of the OCP is supported through the integration of Placemaking, Land Management and Development, Infrastructure, Environment, Parks and Recreation, and Climate Change and Energy objectives throughout the Urban Forest Master Plan. Policy 10.14 specifically directs the City to “Develop and maintain an Urban Forest Master Plan to enhance the urban forest on public and private land.”
