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 105 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.
During 2017, the Community Facilities Conversation took place that involved 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.
