The provision of housing and health care are the responsibility of the BC Government.
The BC Government has the legislative authority to develop these projects without following municipal zoning processes; however they have not exercised this authority in the development of supportive housing projects announced in other communities in BC.
It is expected that the BC Government will follow the usual City of Maple Ridge rezoning process.

BC Housing has created a web page with information on the housing proposals and updates on community consultations
The rezoning process does not begin until a formal application is filed with the City. Here is a chart that outlines the City’s rezoning process. .
* Taken from the Local Government Act - After the hearing, the Council/Board, the council or board members, or committees may not hear from or receive correspondence from interested parties relating to the rezoning proposal. They can hear from their own staff, lawyers and consultants (Hubbard v. West Vancouver, 2005) but if they receive a delegation or correspondence they will be, in effect, reopening the hearing and will run the risk of having the bylaw quashed.
This page will be updated to alert citizens if a formal application is received for any of the proposals that were announced by the BC Government on January 11, 2018.
A development sign will be placed on the property a minimum of ten days before Council consideration of First Reading.
All items coming before Council are posted as part of the Meeting Agendas. The agendas can be found online.
The status of each property development application received by the City is available on our Land Development Application Viewer within a day of receipt.
