Contributing to the Burke Mountain Community

Land development is a key part of building a livable community, and the sale of City-owned lands is integral to helping the City secure its vision for Burke Mountain and the prime properties surrounding the future Burke Mountain Village. Burke Mountain is central to helping the City fulfill its obligation to the Regional Growth Strategy adopted by all Metro Vancouver cities.

City is committed to the long-term plan for the area and is actively developing its roadways, parks and services.

The City currently owns a number of land parcels on Burke Mountain and is the primary land owner and developer for Burke Mountain Village. In its capacity as the land owner, through the Land Management section of the Strategic Initiatives Department, the City has a responsibility to ensure that these property assets are developed in a manner that contributes to the community in a positive way. This includes providing Community Amenity Contributions, which are funds that go toward City amenities and assets, to lessen the financial impact of new development on the growing community.

This approach not only allows the City greater control over the development, but provides a source of revenue that will benefit Coquitlam’s current and future generations.

The City’s properties are managed by the Land Development section of the City’s Strategic Initiatives department. For more information on the City’s land development, contact the Manager of Land Development at landsales@coquitlam.ca or 604-927-6965.
