City Centre Area Plan Update

On Monday, November 16, 2020, Coquitlam Council approved the updated City Centre Area Plan (CCAP) as well as the related amendments to the Citywide Official Community Plan (CWOCP) and Zoning Bylaw, following an extensive consultation process that closely involved the general public, Advisory Committees and Boards, external partners and stakeholders.

The updated CCAP (“the Plan”) replaces the previous Area Plan for City Centre (adopted in 2008), and renews the vision for City Centre as the downtown and ‘heart’ of Coquitlam and northeast region by building on the concept of transit-oriented development, recognizing the importance of economic and cultural vibrancy, and affirming the area’s history as a family-friendly community. The Plan also further implements the vision and policies of the 2012 Transit-Oriented Development Strategy (TDS).

The Plan will guide the physical, social, environmental and economic development and evolution of City Centre in order to ensure a sustainable and measured approach to growth for the next 25 years.

About the Updated Plan for City Centre

Building off the successes of the past, the Plan identifies five new Big Moves. These Big Moves reflect the community’s aspirations for the future of City Centre and they articulate the vision and major policy directions of the Plan. They include:

  • Creating a Vibrant Downtown Core
  • Establishing a Strong Employment Base
  • Building a Family-Friendly Downtown
  • Enhancing Recreation and Cultural Amenities
  • Integrating and Connecting the Downtown

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback throughout the process.
