City Launches Surveys to Guide Development of Urban Villages in Northeast Burnaby

The City of Burnaby is seeking public input as we re-envision the future of two northeast Burnaby neighbourhoods, to shape how these areas will redevelop over the short- and long-term.

For each neighbourhood, an online survey forms the basis of a public engagement campaign intended to help define the character and identity of these historically distinct neighbourhoods. 

Join the discussion now:

“Burnaby residents will guide the transformation of these neighbourhoods into thriving Urban Villages, where people can easily set out on foot to get to work, to shop and enjoy themselves without having to drive,” said Mayor Mike Hurley. “These will be resilient and sustainable neighbourhoods within our community, moving us closer to achieving our commitment to address climate change.”

The Bainbridge neighbourhood is centrally located between Brentwood and Lougheed Town Centre, adjacent to the Sperling SkyTrain Station and Burnaby Lake Regional Park. With the development of the Bainbridge Urban Village, nearby industrial lands will be transformed into a complete, sustainable community integrated within the natural environment of the Brunette River watershed.

The Lochdale neighbourhood is primarily located along Hastings Street between Hammarskjold Drive and Duthie Avenue. This neighbourhood has undergone significant transformations throughout Burnaby’s history, and the Community Plan would seek to build upon this area’s rich past by integrating new housing, connections to transit, shopping and the extensive network of nearby parks.

For each neighbourhood, this is the start of a multi-phase planning and public engagement process which will help shape the Plan area boundaries, preliminary goals and land use framework for each neighbourhood’s Community Plan. Each Community Plan will focus on opportunities to integrate new housing, parks, services and amenities within the neighbourhood.

The development of the Bainbridge and Lochdale Urban Village Community Plans supports significant actions in This is Climate Action, a framework developed to guide how the City will put into action its commitment to be “carbon neutral” (no longer contributing to the carbon emissions that accelerate climate change) by 2050. Preliminary goals for the Community Plans will support housing sustainability and resilience, strengthening links between local jobs, housing and transit, and advancing sustainable community design.

The surveys close Sunday, November 15, 2020.
