New requirements in Coquitlam’s Frontage Works Program will ensure all new homes built in southwest Coquitlam will contribute to upgrading adjacent streetscapes to a modern urban standard, including curbs, gutters, sidewalks, lighting, landscaping and rear lane improvements.

Previously, one-for-one replacements of single-family homes were exempt from this requirement, leading to a mix of old and new streetscape standards.

The updated Frontage Works Program will help create a consistent, modern standard, improving both safety and aesthetics.

Improving Streetscapes in Southwest Coquitlam

Streetscape improvements through the Frontage Works Program will take place in single-family, duplex and other designated housing areas in southwest Coquitlam, and include:

  • Streetscape upgrades or cash contributions; and,
  • Cost-recovery from future development and subdivision applications on streets where the City completes the upgrades.

Streetscape improvements will include:

  • Concrete curb and gutter;
  • Separated concrete sidewalks with landscaped boulevards on both sides of the street;
  • Road repaving;
  • Street trees;
  • Rear lane improvements;
  • Street lighting; and
  • Underground work (storm, sanitary, water) if necessary.
