Neighbourhood Enhancement Blitz

While many areas of Coquitlam are being renewed through redevelopment or growth, some parts of the community are not seeing those same changes. As such, the City has identified ten neighbourhoods that could benefit from improvements including:

  • Adding internally illuminated overhead street name signs at signalized intersections where they don’t currently exist
  • Ensuring all sidewalk corners are wheelchair accessible
  • Remarking road lines with a more visible and durable material
  • Removing any overgrown vegetation around City infrastructure or sidewalks
  • Removing any unnecessary or redundant signs
  • Removing graffiti from City-owned utility boxes and wrapping them with local images
  • Repainting all fire hydrants
  • Repainting the City-owned street light poles and cleaning up their bases
  • Replacing worn-out or faded traffic signs and adding reflective strips to sign posts
  • Sweeping all streets after vegetation removal

Phase 2


Residents in six neighbourhoods will see improvements this spring in phase two of the City’s Neighbourhood Blitz program:

  • Cassin
  • Hoy and Scott Creeks
  • Lower Lougheed
  • Mayfair
  • Oakdale
  • Ozada
