Port Moody's Official Community is set for the next stage of public input after first and second readings were approved Tuesday.

On Tuesday, April 22, a public hearing will be held on the controversial document.

It's been a long process for the OCP, which began with a public feedback process in February, 2012, and, during its passage through the city bureaucracy, brought a range of issues to light, including concerns about development on the waterfront, how tall buildings should be around transit stations and the future of some neighborhoods.

Couns. Zoe Royer and Rick Glumac opposed first and second reading, but it was passed with a majority of council approving it.
