Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


The City of Mission has an ambitious plan to revitalize one of the last and largest underdeveloped Fraser River waterfronts in the Lower Mainland. This new Master Plan process will direct growth, attract investment, and create a resilient and vibrant waterfront community. The wheels are in motion!



Thank you to everyone who participated in Phase 1!

Please join us in Fall 2021 for Phase 2 to share your feedback on the draft concepts.


About the Project

Mission’s waterfront represents a significant opportunity to establish a positive, meaningful connection with the Fraser River that redefines these underutilized lands as a premiere place to live, work and play in a growing region.

Revitalizing the waterfront has many benefits that extend beyond Mission to the rest of the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland and will increase access to opportunities, support sustainability, and drive investment and bold economic development.

To facilitate this vision, the District of Mission is preparing a Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan for the entire 296 acres of waterfront land identified in the 2020 Official Community Plan update.

    How is Mission taking into account the issue of traffic in and out of the City stemming from bridge traffic. I live in Hatzic and over the past few decades the amount of traffic has increased significantly. Our town was never designed to handle so many people driving through it. Maybe the city should first look at fixing that interchange and creating a bypass system (My idea is to create an overpass through the parking lot next to the value village and over train track, direct all east bound highway traffic (stemming from downtown core) down onto railway and shut down the main access to highway 7 from Mary Street, expand Highway 7 to 4 lanes (one lane each being the lane people enter or exit the overpass from and one for those going to down town and the other for traffic from Railway. It may seem trivial but I have more ideas but have to run. email me for more info.

    Thank you for participating and bringing your ideas forward. The City is looking at the transportation implications including the option of extending the Highway bypass eastward from its current termination at Horne St. (Value Village area). We are also looking at how to improve connections between the Downtown and Waterfront area. These draft concepts will be presented as part of Phase 2 Public Engagement and will be shared with the community in Fall 2021.

    We appreciate receiving these ideas. We have added your comments to the collection of information we are receiving and it will be kept as part of the community feedback. For further discussion we are available by phone at 604-425-3676 or by direct email at waterfront@mission.ca to set up a in person meeting at the Waterfront office (7101 Horne Street).

    Plans for the raceway? I come to mission on a Regular basis to use the raceway. I make sure to buy gas local, eat local, and support Mission based business when I am in town for using the racetrack. Each time I use the racetrack I am spending at least $500 in the local economy. If there is long term commitment to the raceway, I would consider buying property near it. If not, then wherever it goes will get my business. I have made friends in Mission thanks to this, please keep the racetrack! Thanks, neil

    Thanks for your question Neil

    The City of Mission has recently met with the Raceway executive and recognizes that the Raceway has been part of the community for a long time.  The Raceway is privately held lands and an important contributor to the Waterfront Master Plan.  The current engagement process with the community, landowners and other key stakeholders is critical to informing the planning process.   In the Fall, land use concepts will be developed for further discussion.  These will explore which land uses are the most compatible given the principles and goals expressed by the community.
