Port Moody 2050: updating our Official Community Plan

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

Update (Feb. 21, 2024): The B.C. government’s new housing initiatives and related legislation will impact Port Moody’s Official Community Plan, and it will take City staff some time to work through the required changes. For this reason, the City has made the difficult decision to pause public engagement on Port Moody 2050. We anticipate that public engagement will resume in early 2025, when you will have a chance to review draft Official Community Plan updates and share your thoughts. We thank everyone who has participated so far and look forward to engaging with you again next year.


Port Moody 2050 is our process to gather public input and update 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. 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 let you know when you can provide input throughout the process.

How can you get involved?

The next phase of engagement is coming in 2025. We'll post details here as soon as they become available.
