Special Plans and Projects - Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan
The Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan is a blueprint for future neighbourhood development and revitalization, guiding growth and reinvestment over the next 20 to 25 years.
The final phase of consultation on the draft Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan is now complete. Outcomes of this consultation have resulted in refinements to the Plan and have been summarized in a Council Report.
A high level Servicing Assessment has also been prepared as a key companion document to the Plan. This Assessment identifies and summarizes required infrastructure improvements (transportation, utilities and parks) to support development of the Maillardville area, including estimated costs and funding sources. Highlights of this Servicing Assessment are summarized in a Council Report.
Below are links to these Reports to Council, including the Draft Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan, Development Permit Design Guidelines and Servicing Assessment:
- Staff Report – Draft Neighbourhood Plan and Design Guidelines (December 9, 2013)
- Staff Report – Draft Servicing Assessment (December 9, 2013)
Following Council’s feedback, staff will finalize the draft Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan, design guidelines, and Servicing Assessment
The Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan update provides a contemporary vision for new growth and reinvestment in the City’s most historic neighbourhood. This update strengthens the original Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan and calls for a walkable, highly livable neighbourhood that celebrates its rich heritage values, features a high-density mixed use Neighbourhood Centre, unique residential districts, new commercial and growth opportunities and a variety of recreational and cultural activities.
Where is Maillardville?
The map below shows the boundaries of the Study Area for the Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan Update process.
It is important to note that the boundaries of a Neighbourhood Plan take into account many variables. Neighbourhood plan boundaries are also informed by the need for a reasonable size (not too big; not too small), natural and built environments, public thoroughfares, topography, existing neighbourhood plan boundaries and other such characteristics of an area.
What will the Update Achieve?
The updated Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan will outline a vision for the area that will help guide change over the next 20 years for this important community of Coquitlam. The planning process provides an opportunity for the community to explore and focus on:
- The creation of a range of housing choices that will be needed now and in the future to address local housing issues such as affordability and choice;
- The provision of more transportation choices. Making transit, walking and cycling easier;
- The continued development of Maillardville into a vibrant, complete neighbourhood that meets the everyday needs of local residents;
- The enhancement of the capability and attractiveness of Maillardville’s employment areas to create more jobs for Coquitlam residents;
- New opportunities to enhance parks and natural spaces.
