The Strategic Initiatives Department manages major internal and external strategic capital projects in Coquitlam. It is also responsible for the management and development of the City of Coquitlam’s land inventory. The Lands and Properties Division provides policy support and advice to City Council and the organization with regards to acquisition and disposition of lands. This includes strategic land holdings in the City Centre area and City-owned properties on Burke Mountain.
Strategic Initiatives provides a centralized approach to project management. Given the broad scope of infrastructure improvement projects, they regularly involve a number of other areas of the organization, such as transportation planning and construction, facilities management and land management. This centralized approach facilitates coordinated project management by leveraging the skills and expertise in these individual areas while ensuring comprehensive oversight of the projects in one department.
