Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan

The City of Mission is in the process of revitalizing one of the last and largest underdeveloped urban Fraser River waterfronts in the Lower Mainland. The Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan will direct growth, attract investment, and create a resilient and vibrant waterfront community.


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 premier 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 City of Mission prepared the Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan for the entire 296 acres of waterfront land identified in the 2020 Official Community Plan update. The Master Plan may be viewed here: https://engage.mission.ca/18448/widgets/88216/documents/82485



What is Revitalization?

Revitalization seeks to realize the social, cultural, and economic potential of the waterfront through a combination of public and private investment that will sustainably facilitate the creation of new homes, businesses, and great community spaces.


What is a Master Plan?

The Master Plan will be the guiding document for future development, infrastructure, and public realm investments throughout the waterfront’s 296 acres of land. The Master Plan will be informed by rigorous technical engineering studies and market analyses to ensure that it is not only visionary but also implementable.


What’s Next?

The Official Community Plan (OCP) was amended to facilitate the Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan becoming the primary reference for all development in the Waterfront Comprehensive Planning Area on July 4, 2022. The focus will now shift to how implementation of the Master Plan may be supported. The Implementation Plan will be based on the City's goals and the steps required to reduce risk & increase certainty in order to attract investment. Continued engagement with First Nations, landowners, stakeholders, other level of government and the community will inform the development of the City's strategies.

    The master planning process requires input from residents, landowners, business owners, and other community stakeholders. Everyone has an opportunity to influence the decisions about how Mission’s Waterfront will take shape. Drawing on community input shared during phase 1 and 2 of the project, the draft Waterfront Revitalization Master Plan sets out a path for revitalization that includes strategies for future land use, open spaces, and mobility.

    The draft plan is now available for review and has been developed into an easy-to-use interactive map where renderings, photos, and text highlight core components of the plan to show Mission’s waterfront coming to life, right before our eyes.
