The Planning Department is involved with data collection, monitoring and the dissemination of information and liaison with a number of internal and external agencies. A large component of the department's service lies in the area of corporate support as assistance is given to Committees of Council as well as to initiatives from other areas of the City.
The department is also responsible for:
pursuing Council's direction in land use policy creation
management of a variety of development applications
environmental policy and enforcement
Council recently endorsed an updated Community Amenity Contribution Program for the City of Maple Ridge. Please see the updated Council Policy 6.31 for the new Target Rates coming into effect August 1, 2022.
During these unprecedented times, many of the Planning staff are on alternating office and work-at-home schedules.
Meetings with staff must be pre-scheduled. It is highly recommended that you arrange a ZOOM meeting if you wish to meet with a staff member.
Alternately you may contact a staff member by calling the Planning Department general line 604-467-7341 and you will be transferred to their voicemail, or by the Planning general email.
