Draft City Centre Area Plan

The City of Coquitlam is updating the existing 2008 City Centre Area Plan (CCAP) to look at creating higher densities, mixed use, and pedestrian-friendly development along the Evergreen Line stations in City Centre. With feedback gathered over the last year and a half from residents, businesses and other community stakeholders a draft plan is now ready for public feedback.  

The Draft CCAP charts a renewed course for the future of City Centre and will influence the way the community grows by guiding decisions on land use, environment, transportation and urban design to strengthen City Centre as the downtown and ‘heart’ of Coquitlam and the northeast region.

Key directions proposed in the draft CCAP include:

  1. Creating a Vibrant Downtown Core
  2. Establishing a Strong Employment Base
  3. Building a Family-Friendly Downtown
  4. Enhanced Recreation and Cultural Services
  5. Integrating and Connecting the Downtown



Phasing & Timeline

The CCAP update will be undertaken in a focused manner over two project phases, beginning in the winter of 2017 with a targeted completion date of mid-2019.

We are currently in Phase ​2 of the CCAP update (see below for more information).
