City of Mission begins 2nd round of engagement on waterfront masterplan

Phase 2 allows stakeholders to review and comment on 3 aspects of plan

The City of Mission has started its second round of public engagement for the Mission Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan.

Phase 2 of the plan is building on the community feedback provided over the summer, and enables residents, landowners, businesses and other stakeholders to review and comment on three aspects of the plan.

Mayor Paul Horn said council needs a “loud and clear voice” from the community regarding how they want the aspects to fit together. He hopes everyone will spread the word about the engagement process.

“I know that Mission will be energized by the incredible mix of opportunities depicted in these land use options,” Horn said. “There is something for everyone and it’s particularly exciting to know that these options have been proven to be economically and physically viable.”

  • Part 1 allowed commenting on components within the Master Plan, including the variety of land uses needed to facilitate a thriving and dynamic community.
  • Part 2 looks at different land-use scenarios, and respondents can comment on three visual representations of how the waterfront could be developed.
  • Part 3 offers the opportunity to suggest where signature parks and open spaces may be located and provide ideas for potential programming.

A live interactive webinar will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 17, and an in-person open house is under consideration for 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 29.

The information received in Phase 2 will shape the development plan, which will be presented to council in the Spring of 2022. It will be followed by the third and final round of public engagement.
