****************

At its meeting on May 12, 2014, Port Moody council adopted its Council Strategic Plan — 2015-2018.

Vision Statement
Port Moody, City of the Arts, is a unique, safe and vibrant waterfront city of strong neighbourhoods; a complete community that is socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable and values its natural environment and heritage character.

As we advised in earlier post ATTENTION — Neighbourhood plan for Moody Centre, one of the action items is to develop a neighbourhood plan for Moody Centre, a specific identified action we are happy to see.

An amendment was made at the May 12th meeting to make the wording consistent with the action item of a neighbourhood plan for Coronation Park.

The section now reads:

  • Develop a comprehensive and sustainable neighbourhood plan for Moody Centre, including potential amendments to the Official Community Plan (OCP)
  • Develop a comprehensive and sustainable neighbourhood plan for Coronation Park, including potential amendments to the OCP
  • Establish a plan for the best future uses of the loco Lands
  • Create a transportation plan for the integration and connection of Inlet Centre Station

The full plan is available online here.

    Nice sounding words in strategic plan, too bad it was a con job. Council needs to talk to real people. Sustainable neighbourhoods? What a joke. Trusting people steamrolled. Yes to rejuvenation, no to ruining our city.
