After COTW discussion, this item will likely appear on a regular council agenda. There is no public input at COTW; however, on this or other matters council can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org . [Update: under council’s new meeting rules, public input is now permitted at the beginning of COTW meetings.]
The opening of the Evergreen Line in early 2017 will influence development around the two stations in Port Moody and along the corridor. To plan for this development, the City is reviewing land use policies for the Moody Centre Station Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Area. This process also involves identifying an appropriate transition between the TOD area and the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The City has already received substantial feedback from the community during public consultations for the OCP. Real estate developers, brokers, and analysts also provided input during a series of roundtable sessions in 2015. The City is currently using all the feedback to develop land use options for the Moody Centre Station TOD Area.
During this proposed pubic [public :-)] consultation process, the City will present specific land use options and gather public feedback to develop a community vision for the Moody Centre Station TOD Area.
Stakeholders will also have opportunities to provide input during the OCP amending bylaw process (e.g. Land Use Committee and Public Hearing).
The primary stakeholders the City will target for this consultation are those who are most likely to be impacted or interested in shaping the future of Moody Centre:
- Port Moody residents;
- Port Moody businesses;
- Property owners;
- Moody Centre Community Association; [emphasis added]
- Participants from previous consultations;
- Port Moody Civic Committees; and
- Local community groups and neighbourhood associations.
The City will also engage with other stakeholder groups that can provide valuable input on the future of Moody Centre:
- Metro Vancouver; and
