Growing the V3H Sustainably

The Tri-Cities fall inside the Metro Vancouver region, which I think is one of the best places in the world to live. The natural beauty alone is unparalleled. And I am not alone in my views – Vancouver constantly ranks as one of the most liveable cities in the world. But if we want our region to continue to be the fabulous place that it is, we need to plan and grow mindfully. Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy strives to do just that.

The growth strategy’s goals include items such as the creation of compact urban areas (one of which would be the Coquitlam Centre neighbourhood) and sustainable transit choices, environmental protection, and sustainable economic growth. The region released the latest draft of its Regional Growth Strategy, Metro Vancouver 2040: Shaping our future in November, which discusses the goals and actions in detail.

Now Metro Vancouver is holding public meetings to discuss the region’s growth. These meetings are a great chance to make your voice heard, and share your vision for our region with our policy-makers. Visit Metro Vancouver’s site for the complete list of meetings or to register for one of the events. The meetings began on January 12 and continue through to January 26. You can also read up on the initiative at the City of Port Moody’s website.
