Below is some info gleaned from the City website. Go to the City for more information. The link above provides extensive information including the staff report to City Council in June 2017.
The City is developing a new sustainable, complete community at East Fraser Lands (EFL). The plan calls for a mainly residential community with a variety of housing types and a commercial centre. Wesgroup Properties (formerly Parklane Homes) owns the majority of the land.
Over 25 years the community will include parks, a community centre, schools, childcare facilities, a riverfront walk, and other public amenities
On June 14, 2017, City Council voted to endorse a planning program to review and update the EFL ODP to reflect: new Council policy and standards; changing environmental conditions due to climate change; delivery of public benefits; options to increase housing diversity in Area 3.
Changes to the EFL ODP and corresponding CD-1 Bylaw amendments will be presented for Council’s consideration at the end of the year-long process. If approved, they will be used to inform ongoing implementation of EFL and future rezoning of Area 3.
Report to Council
Phase 1: Establish planning program
Phase 2: Develop options to address challenges
Phase 3: Confirm package of proposed ODP amendments
Finalize ODP amendments and amendments to CD-1 Bylaws and Design Guidelines
