Public Consultation Process

Community input into the preparation of the Hammond Area Plan is essential to its success. At each Phase in the planning process, there will be an opportunity for input into the Plan, in order to help ensure that the Hammond Area Plan is reflective of the existing characteristics of the community while looking forward to the future of Hammond. Please check back regularly to see how you can provide input into the process and to see the results from past consultation events.

Residential Density Scenarios (PDF):
The Residential Density Models were developed to initiate discussion on residential densities and generate input on what density level the community is comfortable with for Hammond over the long-term. Three density scenarios were presented at the open house showing current, mid-range, and high density. The mid-range and high density model scenarios are based on existing Official Community Plan Policies for Major Corridor Residential Infill. Current OCP policies are provided on the open house panels entitled Maple Ridge Official Community Plan Policies (2 panels) with additional information on the Policy Framework Diagram.
