Upcoming discussion: Bert Flinn Park, Aragon development; and Coronation Park neighbourhood
Excerpt, Council’s 2015-2018 Strategic Plan (city webpage here).
Bert Flinn Park
This topic has attracted considerable interest recently, in part because of potential future land development. In early 2015, the Brilliant Circle Group purchased a large amount of land in both Port Moody and Anmore and held open houses in the summer and fall of 2015. Brilliant Circle Group website: iocolands.com.
Port Moody’s Official Community Plan (OCP) shows a designated road right-of-way (ROW) through Bert Flinn Park on Port Moody’s north shore. A motion has now been put forward to remove the road designation and incorporate the right-of-way into the park. See the agenda link above for more information. The Tri-City News has covered this topic with news articles and letters to the editor, including:
Survey taps Ioco Road residents for comment: Group seeking elimination of David Avenue road extension through Bert Flinn Park believes survey backs its cause (Tri-City News, Sept. 6, 2016), and Opinion (letters).
This development proposal (Moody/Clarke streets) was rejected at a public hearing on April 26, 2016. It is now back for review with some minor adjustments, with a public hearing (tentatively) to be held on October 11, 2016. See agenda link above for more information.

Another controversial topic. Port Moody council’s strategic plan includes neighbourhood plan consultations for Moody Centre and Coronation Park, both established neighbourhoods that will be impacted by the Evergreen Skytrain line. The Moody Centre consultation has not yet happened.
In 2015 and on May 18, 2016, the city held events related to the Coronation Park neighbourhood plan.
For Sept. 15, 2016: “the City of Port Moody has developed a recommended land use concept for the Coronation Park Neighbourhood. We’ll also present draft policies that chart the neighbourhood’s evolution over the next 30 years.” City webpage here.
