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.

    Newbies in Port Moody

    by Aline B, 16 days 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, 2 months 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, 2 months 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...

    Ensure schools can accommodate growth

    by AimeeRita, 3 months ago

    We moved to Port Moody from Vancouver as adults to be out of the hustle and to be able to walk to trails with our young family. And (realistically) to be able to buy a place we could afford!

    I missed out on the 2050 survey- but wanted to share my main concern about the school system not being able to accommodate the amount of families moving to the area. Please be proactive in this area so parents are not left stressed out or missing out on local schools.

    Please stop highrise Developments like lougheed center in Moody center

    by sarad, 4 months ago
    Main reason we moved to port moody was the beautiful mountains view and the fact that it is not an over crowded neighborhood around skytrain station unlike many other cities. We read some article though that new high rise developments are planned right beside the skytrain station. We got very disappointed as port moody was the only place with heritage houses and low rises which was unique and pretty. we would love new low rises or new European style shopping centers or restaurants added in Moody center (something like Gastown and new port village) it would make city prettier and...

    Why we moved to Port Moody and why we've stayed

    by ermamo, 4 months ago
    We moved to Port Moody shortly before the birth of our eldest son, who is now 13. My husband works in town, so we liked the proximity to work and the beauty of the natural surroundings. What we also like is the development that's occurred over the time we've been here. Newport Village has always been great, but I'm also a huge fan of Brewer's Row and I like Suter Brook, Klahanie and other new developments underway or planned. I love that the skytrain goes through the city now and I'm hoping that, with all the people moving into the... Continue reading

    Port Moody, My Home-Port

    by Myrta, 4 months ago

    I grew up in Switzerland, travelled Europe, met and married a Canadian working in Zürich and ended up first in Ontario where our children were born and eventually moved across Canada to B.C.

    We checked out Burnaby first as my husband was teaching at BCIT but soon found this gem (Port Moody) and decided to make it our home. The neighborhood we settled in was and still is very supportive and it had many advantages for me : 1) the schools for my children were close by and 2) so was the university (SFU) as I was working to get...

    Changing Fast

    by Cathy Morton, 4 months ago
    My husband and I chose Port Moody in 2015, based on the Official Community Plan which looked reasonable, and on the fact that population growth was apparently capped at 50,000. Unfortunately, almost the minute we got here, I found myself being drawn into efforts to save Bert Flinn Park, prevent overdevelopment of the Ioco lands, stop city lands from being sold off to developers, and prevent council from agreeing to OCP variances that would add multiple towers well in excess of the permitted height restrictions. If we had wanted to live in Metrotown, we would have moved there in the... Continue reading

    Port Moody resident since 1998

    by Holly, 4 months ago
    When I moved to Port Moody over 20 years ago it was a completely different feel. It was like a small town on the fringe of the big city. Being central it offered ease of transport in all directions. It was quiet and there were no high rises. I was drawn to the natural environment, the history and the ability to easily access hikes in the mountains and walks on the beach all on the same day. I could walk through Rocky Point and not necessarily see anyone aside from the seals and the squirrels.


    The city certainly has changed... Continue reading

    My 15-minute city

    by TVW, 5 months ago
    I moved to Port Moody with my husband when our first child was a toddler. We discovered Port Moody on a drive to visit a family member in Coquitlam - it was December and Newport Village and Suter Brook Village were decorated and lit up for the holidays. We were looking to move out of Vancouver and Port Moody charmed us! Everything we need is within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes for most things) from our home - shops, grocery stores, pharmacy, restaurants, public health unit, library, city hall, recreation complex, trails, Rocky Point Park, SkyTrain, etc. This is...
