Mission, BC — The City of Mission has begun the second round of community engagement for the Mission Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan process. This will direct growth, attract investment and create a vibrant and resilient waterfront community.
Described as one of the last and largest underdeveloped urban waterfronts on the Fraser River, this effort creates a significant opportunity to define and shape the future growth of approximately 296 acres of land.
Phase 2 of the engagement process builds on the input the community provided back in June, enabling residents, landowners, businesses, and other community stakeholders the chance to review and comment on three aspects of the plan.
Part 1 allows commenting on components within the Master Plan, including the variety of land uses needed to facilitate a thriving and dynamic community.
Part 2 looks at different land-use scenarios, and respondents can comment on three visual representations of how the waterfront could be developed.
Part 3 offers the opportunity to suggest where signature parks and open spaces may be located and provide ideas for potential programming.
“I know that Mission will be energized by the incredible mix of opportunities depicted in these land use options,” said Mayor Paul Horn. “There is something for everyone and it’s particularly exciting to know that these options have been proven to be economically and physically viable. What we need next is a loud and clear voice from the community about how it should all fit together. Council and I hope to hear from everyone, so we’re asking our neighbours to both participate and spread the word.”
If you would like to learn more about these visions directly from the Waterfront team, there is a live interactive webinar on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, at 6:30 pm. Alternatively, an in-person open house is under consideration for Monday, November 29 at 6 pm.
This information will shape the preferred development plan to be presented to Council and the public in the Spring of 2022 when the third and final part of the community engagement will happen.
Your opinion is important to us, and you are encouraged to have your voice heard.
