 myPG PART 1 - Community Goals and Actions                                      myPG PART II - Detailed Strategic Plan 

​What is myPG?

myPG is an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ISCP) - a community sustainability initiative supported by community organizations which identify the community's goals for the future of Prince George, the future we all desire.

The myPG plan expresses the community’s vision and goals for the future. Community organizations and the City have strategies to achieve them.

City of Prince George Strategies

Prince George City Council's Strategic Plan sets the direction to develop myPG on behalf of the community. The City Manager provides an update within these strategy areas (Social Development, Environment, Economic Development and City Government) to Council and the Community on the progress toward Council's Strategic Plan, and the relationship to myPG. 

Official Community Plan

One of many projects completed to achieve the myPG goals is the City's Official Community Plan (OCP).  The OCP helps make decisions on things like where we locate housing, what our transportation priorities are, and how we provide services for more sustainable development.  This OCP was developed by the goals identified in the myPG Plan with the community and is now in action.  For information on this process and to view the OCP, click here.
