The City of Port Moody hosted an open house at City Hall (100 Newport Drive) on May 28, 2018 from 4 to 7pm, to obtain feedback on alternatives to the present right-of-way in Bert Flinn Park as a potential route that could connect the Ioco Lands to Inlet Centre. If the Ioco Lands area is developed in the future, and would entail rezoning to allow extra density, then a connector route may be required to help accommodate any corresponding increase in traffic levels.
In 2016, Council directed City staff to prepare a technical report that investigates and evaluates all transportation options for a potential connector route, and to review the identified options with residents and stakeholders. The goal of this open house was to share the findings in the draft technical report (completed in 2018) and seek feedback from Port Moody residents. Council wants to know what you think about the transportation options presented, and the criteria used to evaluate them.
Thank you to everyone who attended our open house on May 28, 2018 and thank you to everyone who took the time to fill out our feedback form. Feedback collected from the public and stakeholders was presented to Council for their consideration in July 2018.
Council asked staff to prepare the technical report and conduct the public consultation to help inform their decision-making when they re-visit the following motion (deferred on September 13, 2016): “THAT the road right-of-way bisecting Bert Flinn Park no longer be designated a road right-of-way; and that the land of the road right-of-way bisecting Bert Flinn Park be incorporated into Bert Flinn Park as a recreation component and service access.”
