Council appears to think the plan as it stands is ready to move forward to the more formal stages for approval (see Land Use below). Council will receive the draft OCP at its meeting this Tuesday, March 25, 2014. To see the complete agenda (warning – very large document), click here:

Historic neighbourhood: The Maillardville article (Coquitlam) is about a neighbourhood plan, and has “nine guiding principles: to design on a human scale; restore Main Street; preserve heritage; facilitate job growth; build vibrant public spaces; provide housing choices; create neighbourhood identity; enhance landscapes; and increase transportation options.
It also recognizes and supports the expansion of existing civic and major institutions, as well as schools, which give identity to the neighbourhood.”
