Coquitlam's vision for Transit-Oriented Development

Coquitlam released its new Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Strategy, a vision for new growth along the Evergreen Line, in July 2012.

The strategy outlines how Coquitlam will maximize space and sustainability by taking advantage of the opportunities created by the Evergreen Line to create higher-density, mixed-use, walkable, connected and compact neighbourhoods.

TOD will be characterized by

• high quality urban design which includes a higher intensity mix of land uses and open spaces;
• increased and more affordable housing choices; and
• healthier lifestyles and less environmental impact through increased transit use, cycling and walking.

TOD neighbourhoods will blend into surrounding lower density neighbourhoods through a transition to lower densities and lower building heights as the distance increases away from transit hubs.

The TOD strategy includes proposed key objectives, guidelines, focus areas, neighbourhood specific planning, implementation activities and timing.
