The City laid important groundwork for the Evergreen Line over 11 years ago when it adopted the Lougheed and Burquitlam Neighbourhood Plans (adopted 2002), which focus apartments, shops, office, and public space around planned SkyTrain stations. In 2012, the City also developed the Transit-Oriented Development Strategy (TDS) to respond to a changing housing market, guide new growth and support future Neighbourhood Plan updates.
The City is now taking a closer look at the Burquitlam and Lougheed Plans, as we want to ensure these neighbourhoods evolve in a way that reflects community needs and builds on the opportunities presented by the Evergreen Line to shape growth over the next 20-25 years. As a result, we are updating the Citywide Official Community Plan in this area based on the recent TDS. See Plan Area map to the right.
We are halfway through the planning process for Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhod, and the City held its Phase 2 round of Community Information Sessions on November 14 and 17. At these information sessions, the City presented proposed land use options for the Burquitlam-Lougheed area seeking community feedback on their ideas for the area overall and/or their own neigbourhood.
If you were unable to attend a Community Information Session or would like to share your feedback, please review the information session panels below for details and share your feedback with us online via our survey below - we are accepting feedback!
The project team will review all of the feedback and will report to Council on the results of the public feedback and the evaluation process after the Phase 2 consultation is complete.
Public feedback along with staff analysis will be utilized to develop one preferred land use concept which incorporates the most desirable elements from each of the draft neighbourhood concepts. This will form the foundation for developing the updated Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan and associated Servicing Assessment.
