How do you see Pitt Meadows in 2040?

I See Pitt Meadows 2040: What is Your Vision?


What will Pitt Meadows look like in 2040? How will we use land? What will our growth look like? How will we get around on foot, by car, transit or cycling? What will our agricultural preservation look like? What kind of homes and businesses will we have? Your input today will help shape what these things look like in Pitt Meadows in the future!

We've held two public events to invite residents to share their ideas and vision so far! The OCP Review launched on May 12 with an open house at the Pitt Meadows Family Rec Centre where over 50 people shared their values and vision for the community. The Vision and Values Sharing Event took place on June 20 at the Heritage Hall where residents participated in group discussions and activities designed to promote sharing of ideas. Check out the Photo Gallery to see some of the interaction and activities at both events! This fall we have been talking with community organizations, seniors and youth regarding the future of the community.

Thank-you to all who completed the survey and attended any of the events held over the last few months. We are now tabulating the results of the outreach and will coming forward soon with a report to Council summarizing what we've heard so far.

More public consultation events are planned for the new year so stay tuned...

    PITT MEADOWS, BC: The City of Pitt Meadows is launching a review of the Official Community Plan (OCP) this weekend on Saturday, May 12 from 2pm-5pm at the Pitt Meadows Family Rec Centre. Residents are invited to drop in and learn about the OCP’s role in shaping the community’s future and how their participation in the coming months is vital to creating a vision for Pitt Meadows.

    “This is an exciting and major milestone for the community. More citizen voices will create a strong identity for Pitt Meadows,” says Mayor John Becker. “When community members, Council, staff, and businesses are involved in creating a plan for our city, the resulting plan will truly reflect the vision of those who live, work and invest here.”

    An OCP is a future-looking, 20 year plan that guides decisions about land use and growth, transportation, agricultural preservation, economic development, and housing. Pitt Meadows' OCP was created in 2008, and although there have been changes made since then, there has never been a full review since its adoption.

    The launch on Saturday May 12 is the first of many events hosted by the City over the next 24 months. Other opportunities will seek input on various areas of the Official Community Plan and residents will be able to participate in a variety of ways.

    Input from participants will be combined with research and analysis to ensure that it translates into clear policies that are brought to life as attractive and functional buildings, streets, town centres, and public spaces as Pitt Meadows grows.
