City-Owned Lands Information Session - December 4, 2017
The City of Port Moody is exploring plans to sell the former Fire Hall and current Works Yard sites for redevelopment. As part of that process, Council will consider proposed amendments to the Official Community Plan (OCP) policies and zoning for these two parcels of land. Join us at the City-Owned Lands Information Session on December 4, 2017 to learn about the proposed amendments.
After considering extensive community input collected during a public consultation in 2016, Council directed staff to draft guidelines for the redevelopment of the two sites. This process includes amending the OCP policies and zoning for the two parcels of land to allow a mix of uses and public amenities, including multi-family residential, commercial, a new library, a public plaza, and seniors’ housing. Council will consider the OCP and zoning amendment bylaws, and schedule a Public Hearing, in early 2018.
Thank you to all those who attended our information session on December 4.

About the Site
The former Fire Hall site and current Works Yard are centrally and strategically located, offering considerable potential for redevelopment that could generate significant revenue for the City to fund new or expanded capital facilities and community amenities.
In addition to revenue generation, developing both sites together could provide opportunities for public space (e.g., public square) depending on the residential form (low, medium, high) permitted on the sites.
Adjacent to the Recreation Complex and City Hall, the current Works Yard is too small for Port Moody’s needs, and is not the best use for such a central location. Suterbrook Creek runs through this property, and redevelopment will enable its west and southern banks to be reclaimed and expanded.
