Work will start this fall leading to a plan for the future development of the close to 15 acres of cityowned land in downtown Port Coquitlam that includes the Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex, according to a press release issued Tuesday by the city.
Expanded recreation facilities and a variety of civic, residential and other uses will be considered for the area bounded by Wilson Avenue, Kingsway Avenue, Mary Hill Road and the south property line of the former works yard south of Kelly Avenue. The site currently includes two ice arenas, Terry Fox Library, Wilson Centre, parking and residential lots along Mary Hill Road.
The first phase of the planning process is set to be completed by the end of 2013 and is expected to result in an overall land use concept and conceptual layout for the future development of the site. Further phases will be identified once this concept and a development program (including financing) are determined.
