What is your vision for Pitt Meadows?

City planners and officials want to know as they embark on a review of the Official Community Plan, a 20-year plan that guides decisions about the future of the municipality.

The long-range guide looks at areas such as development, growth, transportation planning, economic development and agriculture and heritage preservation, explains Dana Parr, senior planner with the City and coordinator of the OCP review.

With the existing OCP finalized in 2008, it was time to review the community’s goals and direction.

The Official Community Plan review is an involved, two-year process with numerous opportunities for public input.

“It’s important for people to share their comments because these things will directly impact them and their lives here,” Parr says.

Your views are vital

Following two early engagement sessions, response has been good to the City’s initial two-question survey, which will be followed up with more focused engagement as the process continues. The varied and extensive process will encourage input from a wide cross-section of residents of all ages, as well as businesses and community organizations.

This first survey, closing Aug. 13, aims to assess in general terms what people like about Pitt Meadows today and what they’d like to see in the future, Parr explains.

It also offers respondents the opportunity to enter their name for a chance to win four passes to the PNE, including unlimited ride passes!

Question 1: “What three things do you most value about living, working or playing in Pitt Meadows?”

Question 2: Complete the following sentence with as many or few words as you like. In 2040, I see Pitt Meadows as a place where… ”

“It’s quick – only two questions – but they’re very important questions,” Parr says, encouraging everyone to take a few minutes to share their thoughts. “We’re looking for as broad a spectrum as we can find.”

Following the close of this survey, the process will continue with more opportunities to contribute and weigh in on other key community topics, says Rebecca Vaughan, Pitt Meadows’ Communications/Digital Media Coordinator.
