What is Phase 2 public consultation?

Thank you to all who participated in Phase 1 public consultation for the new Cascade Heights Urban Village Community Plan. In Phase 2, we’ve integrated the feedback we received during Phase 1 to present detailed draft plan directions on key topics like land use and development, public space and mobility, and housing and community building. We would like your feedback on these detailed draft plan directions before we complete the draft community plan for Cascade Heights in fall 2024.

For more information, please take a look at our Cascade Heights Urban Village Phase 2 Planning and Development Committee (PDC) Report, Phase 2 public consultation discussion guide and Phase 2 open house display boards.

We’re also developing new community plans for the Edmonds Town Centre and Royal Oak Urban Village neighbourhoods. In addition, we’re renewing Burnaby’s Official Community Plan to set the long term vision for managing the city’s growth. Help plan your city’s future by taking part in this exciting process and sharing your ideas.

About this project

We’re developing a new community plan for the Cascade Heights neighbourhood in south Burnaby. This plan will establish a vision and policy direction and shape how this area will redevelop over the mid to long term.

In addition to creating a thriving urban village with a focus on creating public spaces that promote health, happiness and well-being, the Cascade Heights plan will lay out a range of opportunities for the area, including:

  • new or enhanced parks, trails, community services and amenities for residents
  • enhanced streets, public spaces and green spaces/connections, while maintaining Cascade Heights as a quieter, more locally-focused Urban Village
  • an expanded mix of market and non-market housing options
  • local growth and employment options
  • reinvestment as the existing building stock ages
  • the shift to more sustainable forms of transportation (walking, transit, cycling)
  • the enhancement and connection to the natural environment, including streams, riparian habitats and other environmental assets
  • building community resiliency
  • a carbon neutral community by 2050

The Cascade Heights area is located adjacent to the Burnaby Hospital, just east of Boundary Road.

Our goals

The development of the Cascade Heights Urban Village Community Plan 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 by 2050. The draft vision, key values and goals for the community plan will support housing, sustainability and resilience, strengthening links between local and regional jobs, housing and transit, and advancing sustainable community design.

We’re also working to ensure that the new plan is directly aligned with the City’s recently-adopted or updated policies, priorities and strategies, as well as ongoing initiatives, including the Burnaby Official Community Plan Update (Burnaby 2050) and the Zoning Bylaw Rewrite.
