ONGOING
ENGAGEMENT

What we've heard from you

Support for rental housing

Desire for a larger grocery store and more child care spaces

Support for parks and open space

Concerns around heights of towers and numbers of homes

Concerns around traffic and access

*The above feedback and input has contributed to the latest proposal design

To date, we have engaged with the community in the following ways:

  • 3 Resident-Only Open Houses / Presentation

  • 2 Public Open Houses 

  • Presentation to the College Park Community Association

  • Presentation to the Tri-Cities Housing and Homelessness Task Force 

  • 3 videos on various aspects of the proposal posted to our social media and website

 

We’ve also presented to the City of Port Moody’s Community Planning Advisory Committee, and to the Port Moody City Council (for Early Input). 

PAST ENGAGEMENT

Public engagement is a key part of the planning process, which will help our team understand community values, concerns and aspirations for the future of the site. This community input will be considered along with existing property conditions and constraints, developer aspirations and applicable planning policies to inform the development for the site.

Woodland Park & the Environment

June 17 - August 31

For our second video, our project biologist, Chris Macmillan discusses the environmental characteristics of the site and how it shapes the proposal. 

Thank you to everyone that participated in the contest to guess how many acres of environmentally sensitive area are being protected and/or enhanced.

The answer is 5.2 acres. 

Introduction Video

April 30 - June 8

In our first video, Peter Edgar, president of EDGAR and Mark Ostry of Acton Ostry Architects introduce and provide an overview of the Woodland Park proposal.

 

We asked the community "What do you want to learn more about in upcoming videos?" and provided the following options: affordable housing, retail and commercial opportunities, community facilities, alternative transportation, environment and sustainability features, and parks and open space. 

Thanks to everyone that participated! Environment and sustainability features, affordable housing and alternative transportation tied for the top 3 choices.
