Why is the City doing this?

The Town Centre Area Plan (TCAP), which sets out the long range vision for an area, was adopted in 2008 with a vision for creating more density, mixed-uses, and green space, while creating a pedestrian-oriented environment. With this Plan in place, the Town Centre of Maple Ridge has been experiencing a significant amount of redevelopment and change over the past five to ten years. Maple Ridge Council has recognized this growth and wants to ensure that the evolution of the Town Centre continues to be positive and leads to greater vibrancy within this core part of the community. 

To the west of the TCAP boundary is the Lougheed Transit Corridor Area Plan (endorsed by Council on November 10, 2020 and granted first reading December 14, 2021), which reflects the community’s values for long range development within the Lougheed Corridor boundaries. Maple Ridge Council had identified that higher density residential opportunities at the interface of the Lougheed Transit Corridor Area and the TCAP warranted a closer look. 

As such, at the December 14, 2021 Council meeting, Council directed staff to review the land use of properties adjacent to the Lougheed Transit Corridor Area Plan to ensure appropriate transitional land uses are able to be considered.
