  • Moody Centre Station Transit-Oriented Development Plan

    In November 2017, Council amended Port Moody’s Official Community Plan to include the Moody Centre Station Transit-Oriented Development Plan (PDF, Section 15.5.6), which outlines a new vision for this transit-oriented neighbourhood including: higher density, mixed use, pedestrian-friendly development with a range of housing options around the Moody Centre SkyTrain Station. After extensive consultation with members of the community, the new Plan includes the creation of an urban greenway by daylighting Dallas/Slaughterhouse Creek, a pedestrian/bicycle overpass near the station across the tracks, a plaza around the station entrance and child-, family- and senior-friendly amenities.

    In 2018 Council directed staff to work with the interested group of land owners, known as the Moody Centre TOD Area Master Planning Group in the development of a Master Plan, in order to provide a greater level of detail to inform the future redevelopment of this area. A group of owners in the area retained consultants and worked with City staff on a draft Master Plan.

    In September 2019 the Moody Centre TOD Area Landowners’ Master Planning Group (sometimes referred to as the Moody Centre Developer Consortium), shared the resulting concept of the master plan through a series of six stakeholder discussion groups. Council considered a report from the Mayor on this publicly available master plan at the October 8, 2019 Regular Meeting of Council. This concluded the collaborative planning process of owners and City staff. Around the same time, Council also provided separate direction to start the process for an Official Community Plan update that would include a review of the long term vision for the Moody Centre TOD area. View the Port Moody 2050 project for more information on the OCP update process.

    In 2020, the ownership group for the Moody Centre TOD area continued working on their plans and submitted an OCP amendment development application. This page summarizes the review process for this application.
