The Albion Flats Planning Process is a priority project identified in the City of Maple Ridge’s 2017 Business Plan. The broad process outlined below has been endorsed by Council.
The majority of the land in the Albion Flats is within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The Agricultural Land Commission has previously stated that the lands south of 105th Avenue could be removed from the ALR under certain conditions. The land north of 105th Avenue is to remain in the ALR.
The Planning Process will focus on a number of land uses including recreation, commercial, and business park options.
In the first months of 2017 the Community Facilities Conversation will be taking place that involves potential projects located within the Albion Area Plan footprint. The Community Facilities Conversation seeks to obtain public input on improving and expanding community recreation facilities in the community and determine the priorities of citizens and timing to meet the future growth of the community. The information on this work can be found on the Community Facilities Conversation land page.
Once the Community Facilities Conversation has taken place, Council will review the options in order to advance further public dialogue.
