Woodland Park

EDGAR and BC Housing are proposing to redevelop Woodland Park, over the next 15 - 20 years, into a master planned, well-served community with an innovative mix of housing, significant parks and open space, child care and neighbourhood retail. EDGAR and BC Housing have applied to the City of Port Moody for an Official Community Plan amendment and rezoning, to allow for additional uses, height and density. 

Scroll through the website to learn more about the proposal.

Thank you to everyone that joined us on July 5, 2021 for the Online Open House. If you were unable to attend, you can view a copy of the presentation slides below.
