Port Moody Neighbourhoods: Moody Centre - 03/31/10 03:44 AM
Encompassing the south shore, Moody Centre is the focus of much of the future development activity in Port Moody due to the age of the existing housing stock, and is the City’s most diverse neighbourhood from a land use perspective. Implementing transit-oriented development principles with respect to future transit stations to create a more compact, walkable community and reduce reliance on vehicles, is necessary to cope with the regional growth. The primary residential area in Moody Centre is to the south of St. Johns Street, containing a mix of single-family homes, townhouses and apartments, and closely located to all (2 comments)
Port Moody Neighbourhoods: College Park, Glenayre, Harbour Heights and Seaview - 03/30/10 08:04 PM
The neighbourhoods of COLLEGE PARK, HARBOUR HEIGHTS, GLENAYRE and SEAVIEW, are on the south shore of Port Moody, along the forested hillside east slope of Burnaby Mountain, and mainly offer residential homes with a mix of single-family detached, townhouses, and apartments with some commercial development on Clarke Road. There are older pockets of development around Clarke Road and the Barnet Highway, which are beginning to redevelop for single, and multi-family residential uses. The existing land use and character of the Glenayre, College Park, Seaview and Harbour Heights neighbourhoods shall generally be retained.
Most of the housing in Glenayre, Seaview and (0 comments)

Port Moody Neighbourhoods: Ioco - 03/29/10 03:41 AM
The area to the west of April Road in Port Moody, on the gentle south facing slopes on the North Shore of Burrard Inlet, is owned primarily by the Imperial Oil Company, after which Ioco was named. Ioco is an enduring example of the early company towns in the Lower Mainland.
A huge oil refinery was opened in 1915 and a townsite of 83 homes, a grocery store, school, tennis court and other amenities were subsequently developed. Prior, all travel to the townsite was by boat or on horse back. The Ioco area was incorporated into the municipality as (0 comments)
Port Moody Neighbourhoods: Pleasantside and April Road - 03/27/10 03:37 AM
Located in suburban Port Moody on the North Shore of the Burrard Inlet, the residential neighbourhoods of April Road and Pleasantside are very desirable areas with great south facing water and mountain views, and beautiful green country scapes that lure people to the community.
The beach side setting of Old Orchard Park in Pleasantside is a popular warm weather spot for swimming, and features a children’s adventure playground.
The unchanged Official Community Plan policy from 2000, states: 'the existing residential character of the Pleasantside and April Road neighbourhoods shall generally be retained'
Ioco Road serves as the (0 comments)
Port Moody Neighbourhoods: Inlet Centre - 03/26/10 03:59 AM
The Inlet Centre neighbourhood, the youngest area of Port Moody, is located at the head of Burrard Inlet, and serves as a focal point in helping to link the north and south shores of the community.
Port Moody’s City Hall, Public Library, Community Theatre, Recreation Complex, and Eagle Ridge Hospital, are all located within the award winning, master-planned, Inlet Centre community. Klahanie showcases the artistry of West Coast designs in their 4 storey condos, townhouses and high rise apartments, where over 1,000 families now live close to the trails of Rocky Point Park, and the Inlet mud flats at low (0 comments)

Homeowner Protection Never Existed... - 03/20/10 06:40 PM
This is a reminder that there is little if any protection for homeowners in BC. For more than 25 years before the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) was even in existence the builders were running roughshod, and things really haven’t changed. Building a house is not as simple as it used to be, but the loose standards from past decades prevail, and easily pre-date the birth of many first time home buyers in BC today. It is regrettable and shameful that the leaders of the building industry still represent and tout work practices and standards from the dark ages that carry with (6 comments)
2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics an amazing experience... - 03/01/10 09:20 PM
The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics have been an amazing experience and so I posted this on my blog earlier. People walking the Downtown during the Games mostly described it as “electric”, and I certainly felt it. I saw the stunned surprise and glowing delight of international visitors from every continent as they took in Vancouver and reveled in the excitement. Sitting in the German Fan Fest beer garden, sharing a conversation with Australian visitors was truly special; so was the bratwurst and sauerkraut btw. There were dozens of free venues, so as long as you didn’t mind a line-up there was (5 comments)
