Land Management Principles

The City strives to create and maintain sustainable land-based resources, both land inventory and land reserve funds, for the benefit of the community now and in the future. Coquitlam’s City Lands team is guided by the following principles:

  • Strategically acquires and disposes of lands in a way that ensures maximum benefit to the community.
  • Establish and manage a long-term land-based resource within the existing Land Sales Reserve (LSR) fund to ensure the proceeds of the City’s land sales benefit the community.
  • Sets aside a portion of the ongoing land sale proceeds for the strategic acquisition and development of properties within Coquitlam.
  • Borrow internally from the LSR for projects that benefit the community, with re-payment of those proceeds over a pre-defined period of time with interest.
  • Actively pursue opportunities for Public-Private Partnerships as a means to achieve maximum benefit from City lands.
