The City of Port Moody and the Village of Anmore approved a Memorandum of Understanding to work together and exchange information with respect to the development of Ioco Lands recently purchased by Vancouver-based land developer, Brilliant Circle Group. 

“This Agreement demonstrates our commitment to protect the interests of residents on both sides of the Port Moody- Anmore border related to the development of Ioco lands,” says Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay. 

When reviewing development applications both municipalities plan to consult on matters related to:

  • Regional traffic issues
  • Mossom Creek watershed and Fish Hatchery
  • Environmental protection
  • Infrastructure and amenities
  • Neighbourhood and community concerns; and
  • Heritage Protection and related issues.   

Village of Anmore Mayor John McEwan says, “It’s important to work collaboratively on areas of common concern and public interest on a regional level rather than solely on specific areas of municipal jurisdiction. This Memorandum of Understanding provides us with the foundation to do this effectively.”
