2015-09-06: Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy (RGS)
One item on Port Moody council’s agenda for Tuesday, September 8, 2015 is updates to the Metro Vancouver (GVRD) regional growth strategy.
Items are considered “housekeeping” in nature. In a cover memo to council, James Stiver, General Manager of Development Services (Port Moody), notes:
“In summary, the housekeeping amendments as they affect Port Moody, include:
— Updates to the population, dwelling unit and employment projections for Port Moody, as approved by Council on March 24, 2015.
— Designation of the Moody Centre Transit-Oriented Development Sub-Area as a “Regional Frequent Transit Development Area”.
— Mapping changes to clarify that non-designated park areas remain shown as a “General Urban” land use (including a change to the Firehall #1 site from “Conservation and Recreation” to “General Urban”).
— Minor mapping edits to the CPR corridor and several road rights-of-way as a result of the limits of land use designations being mapped to road centre lines in some areas; this does not change permitted land uses in these affected areas.”
The following is an excerpt from Metro Vancouver (GVRD) material:
“The proposed Metro 2040 bylaw amendment (Attachment) proposes 55 regional land use designation changes (15 in Surrey; 7 in New Westminster; and 33 in Port Moody) that will update Metro 2040 Maps 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, and 12.”
