By 2040, Burnaby will create a network of low-carbon, resilient neighbourhoods with housing diversity and affordability
Burnaby has a network of urban villages noted for their potential to evolve into complete and resilient neighbourhoods. They're identified for redevelopment that delivers residential growth, commercial services, employment opportunities, public green space and multi-modal transportation options. Burnaby's urban villages are typically located near a SkyTrain station. Renewable energy projects can supply energy locally and efficiently and will be evaluated on a project-by-project basis within neighbourhoods.
Resilient neighbourhoods build on Burnaby’s longstanding commitment to compact urban communities that are pedestrian, cycling and transit oriented, They feature efficient use of land for housing, ensure strategic replacement of GHG-producing buildings with net-zero carbon buildings, and add trees, green space and green infrastructure.
