Hammond Area Plan

The Hammond Area Plan was given final reading and adopted at the regular Council meeting of January 24, 2017. To read the full plan, see Hammond Area Plan Section 10.5 of the Official Community Plan.

Hammond has a number of unique qualities combining to make it a neighbourhood with heritage character. Some prominent features include several early 1900’s single-family houses, a historic commercial area, a 5.4 hectare baseball park, and a 16 hectare golf course. Local employment opportunities exist within the Maple Meadows Business Park, Hammond Cedar Mill, and nearby commercial areas.

Residents of Hammond describe it as a friendly and family-oriented place, where many neighbours know each other and get together for social events. Hammond is also valued for its smaller size homes with ample garden space, mature trees, and open drainage canals. Many residents also enjoy walking and bicycling through the neighbourhood.

Where is the Hammond Area Plan?

The Hammond neighbourhood is located in the southwest corner of Maple Ridge. It is bounded on the west by the City of Pitt Meadows and the Katzie First Nation, and on the south by the Fraser River; to the north are Lougheed Highway and Dewdney Trunk Road commercial areas, and to the east is mainly single-family development. The nearby highway network includes the Golden Ears Bridge, providing quick access to regional transportation routes.

Past Engagement Opportunities

Hammond Heritage Character Area 

A community engagement process took place between March to June 2021. The process explored potential legislative and regulatory tools for conserving the Hammond Heritage Character Area. The Hammond Heritage Character Area, as identified in the Hammond Area Plan, is an area that contains the highest concentration of heritage features within the original Port Hammond Junction Township plan boundaries. For more information on this engagement process, click HERE.
