Port Moody 2050: updating our Official Community Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Port Moody 2050 is our process to gather public input and draft updates to the Official Community Plan, our long-term vision for the future.

Port Moody's Official Community Plan is important because it communicates our values and guides us as we make decisions about how we use land for housing, transportation, parks, environmental protection, economic development, and more. It’s your plan for your city, so we want to hear your voice.

Together, we’ll explore how we want Port Moody to evolve over the next 30 years, focusing on our overall vision as well as specific areas of the city: the Moody Centre Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Area, the Oceanfront District, the Seaview neighbourhood, and Murray Street.

Port Moody 2050 will include several opportunities for you to get involved in a meaningful way. Throughout the process, we want you to share your thoughts and ideas with us and with others in the community. Your input will inform Council’s decision-making as they consider proposed updates to the Official Community Plan.

We’re all a part of what makes Port Moody such a great place. And we can all play a role and work together to shape our city’s future. Use your voice to help us create a plan for the next 30 years that reflects the shared values and goals of our diverse community. Register today so we can keep you informed and let you know when you can provide input throughout the process.

    No to over densification yes to more safe cycle routes, rapid transit and safer walkways

    by naturelover, about 1 month ago
    I recently moved to Port Moody from the West side of Vancouver - where I was born and raised. I slowly watched Vancouver develop to the point that walking safely around the city became challenging, the congestion of cars was incredible and traffic was often at a standstill. I could add what environmental impact this all has as well. The reason I chose to move to Port Moody is in the basic sense - to live in a smaller community , close to nature. My greatest fear is another city that is willing to tear down green space to create... Continue reading

    Port Moody Steamers

    by Keith D, 2 months ago
    From the West Hill apartments, Woodland Park and now to Heritage Woods, I have lived the majority of my life in Port Moody. Growing up in Woodland Park was humble but amazing. An abundance of green space, parks and the legendary West Hill pool, provided access for kids to gather and roam freely. Belcarra Park, Buntzen and Sasamat Lakes, Burrard Inlet all provided little getaways for kids and families all within our little community. During my childhood, we saw the development of the city centre and further up Heritage Mountain. We have seen the gradual transition and community expansion and... Continue reading

    Port Moody Lifestyle - Green/art spaces, close community, small businesses

    by JF, 5 months ago

    I chose to live in Port Moody for the above three reasons. In my view the above are key values of our community so we support a great quality of life.

    Overdevelopment has huge long term negative impacts to the environment and community, and is short sighted. Let's take a balanced approach with a focus first on green spaces, commercial spaces, and infrastructure that will help support the growth of the community over the long term in the right way. I am happy to pay my property tax bill each year given the excellent community and quality of living we... Continue reading

    Let's Be Open To New Development Including Densification

    by PomoRes, 7 months ago

    Our city and region is facing a housing crisis. According to the Vancouver Sun (April, 2022), Metro Vancouver will need 250,000 more homes over the next 5 to 10 years to offset the housing crunch. However, there has been heated debate at Council and in local media over whether to allow more development, including more dense developments, in Port Moody.

    Currently, our city is not meeting its potential in creating new homes. According to the Tri City Dispatch (January, 2022), Coquitlam is out building Port Moody and Port Coquitlam 3-to-1. The Dispatch also reported that in 2021 only 467 homes... Continue reading

    Please start approving developments. Port Moody needs to grow.

    by Jeffrey Nieuwenburg, 8 months ago

    Please approve the Coronation Park project and other developments in the city. Port Moody shouldn't be the only part of Metro Vancouver losing population, as the recent Census showed is the case. The city could use the increased tax base.

    Council needs to stop prioritizing "flashy arts" installations and promises of daycare or other services.

    Prioritize multifamily units (2, 3, 4 bedroom units) and mixed-use residential and commercial. If the City does this, Port Moody will continue to be family friendly place to live, and without mandating them, daycares and other needed services will open in available commercial spaces created...

    Please stop aggressive density building in Port Moody

    by Marialiveshere, 9 months ago

    We moved here because we were looking for a quiet and interesting place to live. We moved here because there were less high rises, and less corportate fast food, cafe, restaurant chains. We like that there are more local and independent small business', as well as community feeling.

    Please stop the development of natural shorelines, and preserve animal habitats.

    Parks here are already jam packed in the summers.

    It is not at selfish to want to preserve a way of life that is healthy, affordable, and beautiful for those of us that live here.

    It should be much better than Deep Cove without the sulfur site & sawmill site at its valuable shoreline!

    by Rocky, over 1 year ago

    Port Moody is located at the beautiful Burrard Inlet, great valuable, plus westcoast and skytrain, much more convenient transportation than Deep Cove. What a pity because of the sulfur site and sawmill site that damage entire inlet environment. It'll be high appreciated to remove the industry sites, restore back beautiful nature shoreline, gracious waterfront community, full of public coastal beach similar to English Bay in downtown.

    Newbies in Port Moody

    by Aline B, over 1 year ago
    We're new to Port Moody, arriving here from North Van because it offered the best mix of affordability (rapidly disappearing), transit, proximity to nature, walkability and fab mountain views for us to raise our family.

    A concern I'd like to raise here is around cycling challenges. It's not safe currently as there is very little dedicated cycling infrastructure. With a rapidly densifying community and focus on transit and active transportation, I'd like to see more focus on making cycling - particularly along Barnet and Ioco - a viable alternative.

    Are we selfish?

    by M&Y, over 1 year ago

    We love Port Moody, and we love the plans to make Port Moody a vibrant and growing community. We trust our city staff to develop a plan based on the high-density areas close to the sky train system. We love New Port Village and Suter Brook. We believe higher density is the only way to allows current and new businesses to operate and grow less dependant on vehicles and rely more on our excellent public transit. We love future developments such as Flavelle Mills Site (as proposed by the developers). Suppose we force developers to make unreasonable and unviable plans... Continue reading

    Older but wiser

    by Grannie, almost 2 years ago
    I have lived in Pomo for 56 years. We built a home on the north shore, raised a family, owned a business and participated thru sport, library and city council over the years. Things have changed in some ways. Growing up in Glenayre we never came down to Pomo for shopping, work, school or leisure. I believe the same is true today! As teenagers we respected the police as they were everywhere. When I drive thru Pomo, which is very seldom, I stop at red lite after red lite. Housing of all sorts has popped up, too small and not...
