I See Pitt Meadows 2040: Official Community Plan Update

The way our City looks and feels is shaped by our Official Community Plan (OCP). The OCP is a long-range plan that sets out the community’s long-term vision, goals and objectives. Pitt Meadows OCP is currently being updated to plan the community’s vision for 2040. The OCP is currently undergoing a full review, and we are seeking input from everyone in Pitt Meadows.

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!

Summer 2019 Community Engagement

Throughout the summer of 2019 the City gathered public feedback at several events including a House and Community Growth Forum on June 15 and a series of online surveys regarding important issues from agriculture to commercial/industrial lands and employment.

Thank you to all of the participants who contributed throughout the summer in our many OCP engagement events and opportunities. Your valuable input will now be used to help draft the Plan and its associated maps.

Stay tuned for more information and updates later this fall!
