Council is open to and encourages responsible growth. Our Official Community Plan (OCP), originally adopted circa 2012, is designed to assist decision makers in securing the future and current goals of Grand Coulee while ensuring that development takes place in an orderly manner, balancing the environmental, social, physical and economic needs of the community while maintaining the small town atmosphere that is a cornerstone of living here.

As part of the OCP, the Town has a created a Future Land Use map that shows potential future residential, commercial\business, and industrial spaces.

The primary roadblock the Town faces with growth is a lack of developer interest. Nearly all of the vacant land within our boundaries, including farm land, is owned by developers, CP Rail, etc. Unless Council is presented with a development proposal, no new growth will occur. We continue to build and maintain positive relationships and open lines of communication with developers in order to encourage growth.
