Funding for Growth
Coquitlam is a fast-growing city in a rapidly developing region. Its leadership and citizens believe new development must contribute positively to the community while making sure that infrastructure and amenities, such as parks and recreation facilities, are built to serve new and existing residents.
These funding programs operate on the principle of shared value: the community, the development sector and the City all benefit from the increased value created through growth, which includes funding amenities to support a growing community.

Sign value is based on the cost of installation to the applicant and may require documentation. Sign permit fees are charged per sign. If a sign(s) is installed prior to permit issuance, double fees are charged.
