Commercial & Industrial Strategy

Maple Ridge’s Commercial & Industrial Strategy guides long term commercial and industrial development in the City. On October 5, 2015, Council endorsed the Commercial & Industrial Strategy Implementation Plan Matrix. The Matrix is intended to be used as a guide for Council discussions, to help determine future projects over the following time horizons:
  • Immediate Term 2015 and 2016
  • Short Term – 2016-2018
  • Medium Term – 2018-2028
  • Long Term – beyond 2028

Employment Land Redesignation

One of the short term outcomes of the Commercial & Industrial Strategy was that the City needs a range of 69-93 hectares (170-230 acres) of additional industrial lands by 2040. As a way to create more local job opportunities for Maple Ridge residents, Council has identified a number of areas that could potentially accommodate employment-based land uses.
