Welcome to the Moody Centre Community Association (MCCA) website

MCCA-welcome

Adopt-a-street: MCCA adopted the street area of Queens Street Plaza early in 2015, and teams meet periodically to clean the area with equipment provided by the city. If you can spare an occasional hour or so to help, please email us at mcca.pm@gmail.com, and we’ll add you to our list. This would not commit you to a set schedule, but more people willing to pitch in once in awhile will help us to keep the area clean. It’s not just cleaning — it’s interaction and community building!

MCCA Membership:  We welcome new (and lapsed) members at any time.  Must be 19+ and reside in the Moody Centre catchment area (see map).  Annual fee is $5/year. Payment can be made at any event, or by contacting MCCA to arrange (mcca.pm@gmail.com).

June 2017: MCCA Facebook

2019-11: Development projects in progress or in pipeline, Port Moody

2019-11: Development projects in progress or in pipeline, Port Moody

The following development areas marked in red on the Google aerial map are approximate, not exact. The city has indicated it will prepare a summary which will presumably be more sophisticated than the version below. This map will change as projects move forward, are stalled or withdrawn, and still others emerge.

Proposals such as narrow lot subdivision or other smaller applications are not shown below.

 

The Coronation Park area shown on the right-hand side of the map is identified in the city’s Official Community Plan (OCP), but no formal applications for redevelopment have yet been made. The Moody Centre TOD area (rectangle located near bottom centre right of map) is also identified in the city’s Official Community Plan (OCP), with no formal application for redevelopment yet on the city’s development application spreadsheet; however, the consortium of property owners has recently held public open houses.

City of Port Moody development applications
For more details on the areas in red above and to view complete list, view the city’s development applications spreadsheet at the link here.

Links to previous posts for areas marked in red above, roughly from west to east on the map:
