Renewing Riverview Visioning Process
BC Housing is using PlaceSpeak to seek your input to develop a vision for the future use of the Riverview Lands. The goal is to balance the social, economic and environmental goals of the provincial government, City of Coquitlam and the community.
In 2013, the Province announced a new visioning process on the future use of the Riverview lands would begin in early 2014. The objective is to identify potential future uses for the site and inform the City of Coquitlam as it develops neighborhood planning. The process is informed by a set of guiding principles and aims to balance community values, government requirements and economic sustainability.
At key milestones, BC Housing will report back to Coquitlam City Council and update the Riverview Lands Advisory Committee.
The visioning process was launched in February 2014. The goal of the process is to build consensus among stakeholders, groups and people at the local, regional and provincial level on the future use of the Riverview Lands. While public engagement will be mindful of earlier processes, reports and groups, it will look to reach a broad range of stakeholders through interviews, public open houses and an active online presence.
The visioning process is informed by a set of guiding principles to make sure it balances overall social, economic, environmental and First Nations aspirations.
The visioning process will respect Riverview’s historic and present value to the community, local First Nations and the Province of British Columbia. The aim is to engage a broad variety of stakeholders to find potential future uses for the site that will inform and guide future neighborhood planning while balancing community values, government requirements and economic sustainability.
