2018 Citizen Survey

City-owned lands

Former Fire Hall and Existing Works Yard

These two parcels of land are centrally and strategically located near existing infrastructure and amenities including the Port Moody Recreation Complex, Civic Centre, Port Moody Public Library, and Inlet Centre SkyTrain Station. Exploration of land use options for these sites was identified in the Official Community Plan in 2014 as part of the Inlet Centre Policy.

The City engaged with the public during a consultation process to gather community feedback on the future use of the two sites, including development concepts and planning principles. We hosted a community ideas on June 11, 2016 (view the consultation summary) and an information session on December 4, 2017 (view the consultation summary). 

As part of the 2018 General Local and School Board Election, Port Moody voters were asked to share their opinion on the proposed sale, partial sale, or lease of the former Fire Hall and existing Works Yard sites to pay for one or more potential community improvements. On their ballots, voters were asked the following Community Opinion Question: Do you support the sale, partial sale, or lease of the former Fire Hall and existing Works Yards sites to pay for more park land and one or more of the community improvements listed above? The outcome was as follows: 52.5 per cent (4,638) of voters responded "no" and 47.5 per cent (4,103) responded "yes." The results of the community opinion question will be considered along with technical and financial information as part of future Council discussions.

Climate Action Plan
We're developing a Climate Action Plan - a community-wide strategy to help the City and its residents adapt to climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Thank you to everyone who attended our Climate Action Plan Open House on November 14, 2019 and/or filled out a feedback form. We asked you to share your thoughts on a list of proposed actions that may be included in a draft Climate Action Plan, to be considered by Council in 2020.
Coronation Park

In 2017, Council amended Port Moody’s Official Community Plan to include the Coronation Park Neighbourhood Plan (Section 15.3.1), which outlines a new vision for this neighbourhood: a transit-oriented, pedestrian-friendly, and bike-friendly community that has a range of housing forms and types in close proximity to shops, amenities, and public transit. The Plan includes opportunities for a variety of land uses, including high-rise residential, high-rise mixed use, low-rise residential, and park space.

The Coronation Park Neighbourhood Plan was completed after extensive consultation with members of the community. This included open houses on May 18, 2016 (view the consultation summary) and September 15, 2016 (view the consultation summary). 

For more information on our Coronation Park Neighbourhood Plan, visit our neighbourhood plans page. 

Development Cost Charges (DCCs)

We are updating our Development Cost Charges (DCC) Bylaw to reflect the infrastructure requirements of new development.

Two public information sessions were held on June 26, 2019. View the handout and presentation.

Next steps: The draft DCC Bylaw has been submitted for Provincial approval. 

Flavelle Mill Site

Flavelle Oceanfront Development applied to the City to amend the Official Community Plan (OCP) designation for the Flavelle Mill property from General Industrial to Mixed Use – Oceanfront District. Open houses were held on January 7, 2016 (view the display boards) and January 26, 2017 (view the display boards).

Following Metro Vancouver Board approval on May 25, 2018 to change the regional land use designation for the Flavelle site to General Urban, Council adopted the OCP amendment bylaw to designate the site as Mixed Use – Oceanfront District.

Moody Centre Station Transit-Oriented Development Area Plan

With new skytrain stations in the community, we explored how to create compact, walkable, mixed-use neighbourhoods that support transit. 

An open house was held October 6, 2016. View the consultation summary. A second open house was held March 17, 2017. View the consultation summary.

Rocky Point Park playground replacement

In September 2018, the City presented a playground design and invited members of the public to share their thoughts. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback. The new playground was installed in April//May 2019.

The double (parent and child) swing that was part of the previous playground will be reinstalled, and a bench will be added. Picnic tables have been moved to two different locations in Rocky Point Park: one now sits by the Rotary SK8 Park, and two others are located about 30 metres away from the playground (toward the Inlet). 

Sign Bylaw amendments to support installation of two digital billboards
After a town hall meeting on November 12, 2019, Council approved amendments to Sign Bylaw No. 2403 to support the installation of two digital billboards on City property. 
Single-use items

Council asked City staff to invite Port Moody business licence holders to share concerns they may have about eliminating the use of single-use items such as beverage cups, straws, food containers, utensils, and shopping bags. In March and April 2019, the City gathered input from business owner/operators via an online survey. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Single-use items are products and packaging that we throw away or recycle after just one use. These items can end up in our landfills and in our oceans and rivers, where they contaminate our soil and water. While there are no draft City bylaws currently under consideration related single-use products or packaging in Port Moody, Council will consider the input received from business licence holders when making any future recommendations or decisions on this issue.

Under Metro Vancouver’s Zero Waste strategy, member municipalities are seeking support from the provincial government to develop a single-use items reduction strategy.
