City begins community engagement for Mission Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan

Wants the community’s input to bring to life the vision outlined in the Official Community Plan

The City of Mission has begun community engagement for the Mission Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan process.

According to a press release, “This will direct growth, attract investment and create a vibrant and resilient waterfront community.”

Described as one of the last and largest underdeveloped urban waterfronts on the Fraser River, this creates a unique opportunity to define and shape the future growth of this significant 296 acres of land.

The release goes on to say “The project team wants the community’s input to bring to life the vision outlined in the Official Community Plan where the area is seen as a hub of activities and a community gathering place that is mindful of job creation, residential, commercial, retail, industrial, and recreational spaces.”

The community voice will include those of stakeholders, landowners, local government, and residents. This phase of community engagement will be reflected in the development of three land-use concept plans released this Fall, and following a second phase of community engagement, culminating with the preferred option in Spring 2022.

There are several ways to participate, all are available via engage.mission.ca
