Shaping the Future of Chilliwack Proper and Fairfield Island – Public Meeting Wednesday September 20

Chilliwack – The City of Chilliwack is undertaking a neighbourhood plan to provide a clear vision for guiding future decisions on infill growth and redevelopment. To make room for new homes as the population of the City grows, larger properties are being subdivided into two or more lots, or in some cases townhouses are added. Given this residential infill and redevelopment, a planning process is underway to develop a plan on how this type of development should occur for best fit within the residential areas of Chilliwack Proper and Fairfield Island.

The City’s Infill Development Policies were established in 2011, to guide decision-making concerning rezoning and new zone proposals within existing neighbourhoods, to ensure infill development and higher density is added in a manner that is in keeping with and enhances existing neighbourhoods. Drawing on the intent of the Infill Development Policies, the neighbourhood plan for Chilliwack Proper and Fairfield Island will take a closer look to create a long term vision and policy framework unique to these neighbouhoods for guiding future growth and development.

A Public Meeting is set for Wednesday September 20 at Evergreen Hall. It’s from 6:30 to 8:30PM.

  1. STOP the mad pace of infill development until you can provide the needed infastructure needed to keep life liveable here. It’s almost impossible to move here now just think what it will be like with another 50,000 people.

    Barbara Lock, You are absolutely right! Before anything else, Council priorities to
    provide infrastructure to keep life liveable here. My first visit to Chilliwack was
    50 years ago and it havent change much. As I look at the streets, 40-50-60 years old
    houses, TV, Phone, Power cables hanging in the air like spaghetti /not underground/
    no main garbage been. I hope we dont go as low as south Amerika.
    I LOWE MY British Columbia, but Chilliwack must chage for others to move here.
