Waterfront Revitalization Masterplan

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

The District of Mission has established a comprehensive planning area, representing approximately 296 acres of land, that will guide a future for the waterfront that is complete, walkable and connected.

Revitalizing the waterfront has many benefits that move 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.

Cities across the country are actively transforming their waterfronts to create vibrant new neighbourhoods with parks and trails, arts and cultural spaces, diverse housing options and innovative business spaces that incorporate important historical and cultural values.

A few examples of these waterfronts are happening in Halifax, Toronto, Winnipeg, and Hamilton.

Council approved a bylaw to add the Waterfront Comprehensive Planning Area designation to the Official Community Plan Bylaw on Sept. 21, 2020.

Vision

Mission’s Official Community Plan defines the vision for the waterfront as a vibrant hub of activities, residences, industry and commerce to support a resilient and complete community.

The 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.
