Port Moody Official Community Plan

The Tri-City News reports the public consultation results are in for Port Moody’s new official community plan. In general, it looks like the public doesn’t have a ton of complaints. Considering that the people who generally take the time to give the city feedback are fairly NIMBY, most Port Moody residents who gave feedback see the need for density to increase. Also clear is people want to maintain the historical feel of Moody Centre. You can leave feedback at any time by emailing ocp@portmoody.ca.

Coquitlam city staff are now studying what can be done to improve road safety along the Lougheed Highway in front of Riverview. They’re looking at ways to create a median barrier to avoid the possibility of head on collisions, as well as other road widening and retaining wall upgrades. The faster we can prevent the next deadly accident, the better.

Coquitlam council has to figure out what to do with Linda Reimer after winning the provincial seat in Port Moody. One suggestion being floated now is Linda could take a year long leave of absence until Jan 1st, 2014. At that point, the city would no longer be on the hook to hold a by-election, with November 2014 being the next general civic election.

Mackin Park in Maillardville has received a $2.6 million dollar upgrade, with the second phase of the new playground and washrooms now ready to go.

Out in the wilds of Belcarra Park, there are seven summer cabins that have been on park land since the 1940’s. Problem is they’re in rough shape, and the landlord Metro Vancouver would need to spend a bunch of money they wouldn’t make back to repair them. Residents of course want to stay. Stay tuned.

The Port Moody Museum has a new Program Coordinator. Brianne Egeto takes over from Rebecca Clarke who has moved on to the Gulf of Georgia Cannery in Steveston.

Hungry? Robin Leung quite like the Filipino cuisine of Kulinarya in Coquitlam.

And finally, Port Moody public works day was held at the Civic Centre, and Tri-Cities TV was there.
