The City of Port Moody will host an open house at City Hall on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 from 7-9pm to get community feedback on a draft recommended land use concept for the Moody Centre Station Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Area. A TOD area, as designated in the Official Community Plan, is a dense, walkable, mixed-use area built to support and encourage access to public transit.
“Our first open house in October gave residents and stakeholders a chance to comment on key development issues like building height and density, parks and public spaces, and transportation connections,” said Mayor Mike Clay. “City staff are now ready to present a draft land use concept, and I invite people to come to the open house, share their thoughts, and help us shape the future of the area around Moody Centre Station. The arrival of SkyTrain means exciting changes are coming to the neighbourhood, and the City values the public’s input.”
On March 1, City staff will present a summary of public survey results from the first Moody Centre Station TOD Area open house, followed by the draft recommended land use concept and draft policies that will help guide how the neighbourhood changes and develops. Attendees will be able to share their comments via a paper survey; residents who are unable to attend can fill out the survey online at portmoody.ca/moodycentre after March 1.
Feedback on the draft recommended land use concept and draft policies will be used to refine the policies and actions for the Moody Centre Station TOD Plan. City staff will then present a final version of the plan to Council for consideration.
