City Centre Area Plan Update

The City of Coquitlam is updating the existing 2008 City Centre Area Plan (CCAP) to look at creating higher densities, mixed use and pedestrian-friendly development along the Evergreen Line stations in City Centre.

The report presented to Council-in-Committee on September 14, 2020, entitled "Updated Draft CCAP", presents a series of refinements to the draft CCAP based on consultation feedback, including clarifying the vision for City Centre, enhancements to images and graphics, and new and refined policy directions.

Next Steps

With the feedback and direction received from Committee on the updated draft CCAP, staff will make refinements and bring the draft Plan forward as an OCP amendment bylaw for Council’s consideration and referral to Public Hearing in the fall of 2020.

About the draft Plan for City Centre

The draft Plan charts a renewed course for the future of City Centre and will influence the way the community grows by guiding decisions on land use, environment, transportation and urban design to strengthen City Centre as the downtown and ‘heart’ of Coquitlam and the northeast region.

Key directions proposed in the draft CCAP include:

  1. Creating a Vibrant Downtown Core
  2. Establishing a Strong Employment Base
  3. Building a Family-Friendly Downtown
  4. Enhanced Recreation and Cultural Services
  5. Integrating and Connecting the Downtown
