Port Moody Special Study Areas
The new owners of the Ioco lands special study area have now held three public open houses, the latest on September 19, 2015. The area consists of about 80 acres in Port Moody’s north shore area (and about 150 acres in Anmore).

The Mill and Timber/Flavelle site owners (Flavelle Oceanfront) held an open house in June 2015, and have had a presence at several local events, the latest at the Food Truck Festival on September 19, 2015. It consists of about 34 acres just west of Rocky Point Park in Moody Centre.

Owners of the former Andres Wine site (Peller) are in preliminary stages of assessing best use and planning for the site of about 5 acres. It is located east of Barnet Highway and north of Clarke Street, at the north-western area of Moody Centre.

It’s difficult to predict what the aggregate effect will be in Port Moody, but likely reasonable to expect potential major changes to the face of Port Moody. Any changes require public consultation and all of the required steps will take time.

The combined total of the above three areas is about 120 acres in Port Moody.

Current development applications (as of June 2015) in Port Moody are listed on an Excel spreadsheet, available here. Several applications involve OCP amendments and rezoning, including Aragon’s proposal for expansion at Clarke and Moody streets.

Evergreen Skytrain delays
Evergreen Line 9 months behind schedule as tunnel machine idle for half a year
By Susan Lazaruk, The Province — September 8, 2015

“The Evergreen Line’s tunnel is only half complete, but the project is already nine months behind schedule due to problems that have left the boring machine idle for the past six months.

B.C.’s Transportation Ministry says the overall project is 70-per-cent finished and is still in line for a fall 2016 completion. But if the second half of the tunnel is constructed at the same pace as the first half, completion of the 11-kilometre project could take until early 2017.”
