Community update — June 21, 2014: Parks and Recreation draft plan, and more

Parks and Recreation Master Plan — draft update

The City of Port Moody held its open house on Thursday, June 12. This draft is an update from the current plan completed in 2003. Information is available on the city website here: All feedback to the city on this plan is requested by June 26, 2014. The plan is expected to go to council in September.

For some highlights from my review of the draft, see

OCP and Mill and Timber (Flavelle) industrial lands

On June 10, 2014, council voted to send a May 4, 2014 report to Metro Vancouver as part of a formal request to amend the Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy, Metro 2040, to change the land use designation for the Mill and Timber site from “Industrial with a Special Study Overlay” to “General Urban.” This area would still be called “Oceanfront District with Special Study Area overlay” in the city’s OCP land use map, but would not show as a special study area in the regional map.
