City of Burnaby is seeking your input

Here are some of the opportunities to provide your input about city projects

Brentwood Town Centre Development Plan

Do you have any suggestions for the future of Brentwood Town Centre? If you are a Burnaby resident or business owner, you can voice any concerns, make suggestions, and give feedback on the Brentwood Town Centre Development Plan and Brentwood Site Master Plan. 

According to an announcement by the city, recent changes to the City’s Rental Use Zoning and Child Care Action Plan policies have provided an opportunity to revisit elements of the two plans. The city aims to “offer more diverse housing options and social amenities on sites, as well as to review the land designation regarding its permissible use.” 

If you have any ideas, questions, or suggestions, bring them to a drop-in open house the city is hosting on April 2, 2024, from 4 to 7pm at The Amazing Brentwood, 4567 Lougheed Hwy (second floor Centre Court, next to TABLES food court).

Safety first: share your thoughts on the city’s safety plan

If you are a Burnaby resident concerned about safety in the community and want to know what the city is doing in that regard, check out the City’s Community Safety Plan (2023 Progress Report and 2024 Update). The 38-page report tackles everything from gun and gang violence and homelessness to the RCMP’s new detachment. 

The city is currently asking residents and business owners to share their feedback on the community safety plan through an online survey from now until April 2, 2024. This is your chance to have your suggestions and comments incorporated into future plans and safety initiatives. 

Burnaby 2050: The city’s official community plan

Engagement for the third phase of the city’s official community plan (OCP) will start this spring.  From April to June, the city will request public and business feedback on the latest phase of the OCP online and in person. 

Watch this space for updates in the coming weeks, and make sure your voice is heard and you play an active role in shaping your city's future.
