Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan – General
The information is based on ATTACHMENT 1 DRAFT – January 11, 2017 by the City of Coquitlam.
Planning for the Future
The Burquitlam-Lougheed area, which is composed of a number of unique and
established neighbourhoods, has a population of just over 20,000 people and
approximately 370 businesses. Covering almost 560 hectares (1400 acres)
along the key North Road/Clarke Road corridor, the Burquitlam-Lougheed area
connects with Burnaby to the west, Port Moody to the north, the Trans-Canada
Highway to the south, and borders on the Austin Heights and Maillardville
neighbourhoods to the east.
The arrival of the Evergreen SkyTrain extension into the Burquitlam-Lougheed
area represents a major, regional transportation investment that will improve
transportation access for residents and businesses. This new rapid transit service
will also undoubtedly stimulate significant new growth along the SkyTrain
corridor in the coming decades, which presents an opportunity to shape and
focus this growth in a ‘locally-appropriate’ manner that maximizes housing
choice, provides new amenities and recognizes existing neighbourhoods.
VISION, PRINCIPLES AND LAND USES
Developed in consultation with the Burquitlam-Lougheed community, and
based on the community context and opportunities for growth and investment,
this vision serves as the policy foundation for the Burquitlam-Lougheed
Burquitlam-Lougheed is a complete community made up of a collection of
distinctive neighbourhoods. These range from active neighbourhood centres and
streets in the core to quieter, outlying, lower-density residential areas.
Burquitlam-Lougheed offers a range of housing options, local employment,
and social interaction opportunities, with high quality parks, streetscapes, and
community amenities in a safe environment. Connected locally and regionally,
people move efficiently by transit, walking, cycling, and driving.
