Planning initiatives in the Burquitlam Station Neighbourhood

Let's see - we have a Transit Oriented Development Strategy or TDS.
The city as a new TDS which is a recent key initiative.  You can read the document on their website.
Among the items in this document, there is the introduction of the Community Amenity Contribution or CAC.
This brochure explains the new program but only applies if there is a rezoning or redevelopment.

In conjunction with this, there will be an update to the Burquitlam and Lougheed Neighbourhood Plans starting in early 2014.  The completion is aimed for early 2015 so it appears this will be a year long process.

It's nice to see this is finally getting going. Like the "Nevergreen line" which finally came to pass, the Burquitlam Neighbourhood Plan is long overdue and was formerly targeted for September 2013.
