Plan Update Status
The draft Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan (BLNP) has been prepared in consultation with area residents, and stakeholders and feedback from Council. The draft Plan is now ready to be presented to the public for a final round of consultation to provide opportunities for review and feedback by residents.
Draft Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan
Drop-in Community Information Sessions
The third round - Phase 3 - of public consultation on the draft BLNP and land use concept will take place on the following dates at the locations listed:
- Sat. Feb. 11, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., Roy Stibbs Elementary, 600 Fairview St., Coquitlam, BC
- Wed., Feb. 15, 5 - 8 p.m., Mediated Learning Academy, 550 Thompson Ave., Coquitlam, BC
Survey / Comments
We hope you attend one of the Drop-in Community Information sessions and most importantly take our online survey.
You can review the complete Draft BLNP above but the online survey also has the draft as well as the display panels from the Information Session.
You can also complete a comment form at one of the remaining sessions.
Once all the feedback is reviewed, staff will report back to Council with any proposed refinements, and finally bring forward a finalized draft BLNP for Council consideration of adoption (following a Public Hearing) by mid-2017.
Draft BLNP - How We Got Here
Please watch this video (4:44 mins) that explains the process we undertook to develop the Draft BLNP. We have participated in more than 2000 interactions with the public including community information meetings, online surveys, comment forms, social media, in person, by phone and email. Your opinions matter now as we present the Draft BLNP, so please watch this video and take our online survey to tell us what you think.
The draft BLNP builds on key learnings from previous neighbourhood planning processes, and includes new policy directions that recognize the influence of the Evergreen Line on shaping future growth, provide improved land use certainty within Burquitlam-Lougheed neighbourhoods, and include land uses that accommodate a range of development forms and residential types that transition out from the Evergreen Line.
A key Plan enhancement involves more robust urban design policy (Section 4) to ensure new development has a high-degree of architectural excellence that recognizes/capitalizes on ‘landmark’ sites, is walkable and transit supportive, and enhances neighbourhood character with active ground-floors, human-scale design and public open spaces and plazas.
