Port Moody 2050: updating our Official Community Plan

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

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

Community Survey #2 is open – share your thoughts with us today! This survey, which will remain open through June 28, 2021, covers key topics that were identified by the public and City Council in our initial phases of engagement.

Your input will help us prepare land use scenarios and options for four Port Moody neighbourhood areas: Seaview, Moody Centre Transit-Oriented Development Area, Oceanfront District (west of Rocky Point Park), and Murray Street. You’ll have a chance to give us your feedback on these land use scenarios in our next phase of public engagement planned for September/October 2021.

There are more ways to get involved! Tell us your Port Moody story. Why do you choose to live in this city we call home? Whether you grew up in Port Moody or you moved here as an adult, you have a story to tell and we want to hear it. Simply click on "Share your story" below and start writing. You can also ask a question or leave a comment below.

Thank you to everyone who participated in Community Survey #1: Vision and Goals. Read our engagement summary to find out what we heard from the community when we asked for feedback on the vision and goal statements in the 2014 Official Community Plan.

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 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 throughout the process.

As our city grows I hope we have the 'critical' services to support our growing population including doctors and schools. It's extremely difficult to get a doctor at the moment!

It would also be nice to see an improvement to our parks with additional and improvement to current ones. My wife and I find ourselves traveling to Poco and Coquitam to bring our kids to their much better parks including Lions Park, Mundy Park , Queenstown Park and Riley Park- on another level compared to most parks around here. Rocky Point is pretty good but it's always packed which is why we need more around the city.

Immediate plans to preserve more land for parks is needed. Rocky Point Park and the shoreline trail are so busy. This could be coordinated with other cities who also need more park land to (hopefully) reduce the people travelling to Port Moody to access our parks.

Also, all the new low rise buildings going up are very unattractive and take away from the quaintness and charm of Port Moody. They look institutional. Everyone I've spoken with in the building mentions how ugly they are to look at. Who is approving these?

Please stop putting in the 5G street lights everywhere. They are harmful to humans and that awful white light they emit actually burns your retinas. Theres been many studies conducted and some countries have outright banned it altogether. I hope Port Moody hasn't signed up to be a "smart city". I don't consent to a 5G smart city that will harm me and my neighbours. Also, the 20 5G antennas on 2909 Hope Street Legion building is causing harm to veterans living there. I understand they receive money (incentive) to have the towers there. This is criminal. If you put more of these towers everywhere you're knowingly causing harm to the residents of Port Moody. Port Moody needs to outlaw these like many other countries have.

I want to see more public art...sculptures and murals are a good start. The City should reach out to local artists and even the schools to submit pieces.

Question purpose of OCP if Council is able to change it to suit deep pocket developers proposals?

Inlet Centre station bays 1 and 2, and stop 53173 (Barnet Hwy @ Ioco Rd) must be relocated so there's less road crossings and access to any bus bay/stop is simpler and faster. Bay 1 and 53173 be combined and relocated closer to the station west entrance. Bay 1 is too close to the 59845 (Ioco Rd @ Suter Brook Way) yet far from the station entrance. Bay 2 is also far from the station entrance like 53173 and crossing Ioco Rd requires time to reach the stop which I miss the 183 bus multiple times because it takes time for crosswalk signal to allow pedestrians to cross. I propose there must be an entrance near the Westwood Honda dealership for buses to turn right and face westbound, and Bay 2 be relocated at the pedestrian crossing (no signal).

Queens Street station must be built ASAP to reduce walking times to Moody Secondary and nearby businesses, and transfers to other modes (e.g. students shouldn't need to first take a 180 bus (which isn't as frequent as the 160 located one stop east on St Johns Street) to Moody Centre or Burquitlam in order to ride the SkyTrain). Also, PoMo should partner with Coquitlam to acquire 789 Clarke Rd in Coquitlam and provision the land for a future in-fill station. More details are under "Build the provisioned in-fill stations (on the Canada Line, Evergreen Extension, etc.) with partnerships or other necessary means to achieve" on TransLink's Transport 2050 portal: https://engagetranslink.ca/transport-2050/brainstormers/share-your-ideas/ideas/14254

Moody Centre station must be rebuilt. Its parking must be underground, have multiple access points, gates, and LPR (License Plate Recognition). Parts of the station have potential loopholes for theoretically possible physical fare evasions due to no gates present between WCE and SkyTrain. Also, this for WCE access to be consistent system-wide. I.e. no gates between WCE and exit. Moreover, walking to any bus bay or other modes must not require walking around 1+ blocks. E.g. 182, 184. In addition, this is to provide a North entrance to serve Rocky Point, etc. More info under "New station layouts for Moody Centre and Waterfront" on TransLink's Transport 2050: https://engagetranslink.ca/transport-2050/brainstormers/share-your-ideas/ideas/8881

Your Official Community Plan that you have submitted looks like the same Official Community Plan that you put on your website 7 years ago, in 2014/2015. How come you keep asking our opinion but nothing is done with our input? It doesnt seem like anything has changed or been regarding any development. But I do know that the ugly townhouses in Balmoral are falling apart inside and out. They dont seem.to go along with your city of the arts comment. They should have been torn down years ago. Just like that very artsy Buns Master building. So pretty in the middle of city wouldn't you say? NO!!!!!!!

Please add the pretty street lights you have added to St. John along the shoreline trail as well. It would
be very attractive at night for strolling and running/ dog walking , like northvancouver and downtown trails . We love port moody to have some night life especially a pretty one :)

We recently moved to port moody and one thing we noticed immidiately is access to rockypoint park is kind of a hassel from other side of st John because there is only 2 over passes and both are pretty far from us. One more over pass between those 2 at Moody Skytrain station would be really helpful to pedestrians.

So far so good! I think it's great to have the goal to live up to our title of "City of the Arts" and to create employment opportunities around it. A few poor leaders ignored this title, opting for "city owned by developers" but there is so much promise in idea of what Port Moody can be with this restored vision of being an artistic hub with character, heritage sites, waterfront and green spaces for all to enjoy (appreciate the consideration given to the environment). Thank you for consulting the community and all your hard work.
Thank you

You need to build more pedestrian overpasses at the sky train stations along St Johns. Particularly at the Ioco 3 way. It is already a dangerous gong show and with all the development you have allowed, only going to get worse
