Ideas sought for affordable housing in Maple Ridge


Maple Ridge wants to know where and how people will live and how they’ll be able to afford it.

So the district has launched an online questionnaire to get your ideas and mix them into the housing action plan due for completion this year.

By going to, people can click on a map and tell the district what type of housing should go where.

They can also take an online questionnaire to give the district further input.

The survey takes five minutes to complete, and combined with other efforts, will help create the recommendations for housing that council will consider later this year.

Some of the goals of the housing action plan are to assess the local housing market, identify priorities and encourage more rental housing, as well as to work with other levels of government to provide affordable housing.

The plan, setting out a housing policy, is scheduled to go to council in July.

Completing a housing action plan is one of the requirements of Maple Ridge signing on to Metro Vancouver’s long-term Regional Growth Strategy.
