It may be the middle of July, but Port Moody is not taking a vacation this week.
A massive agenda is on tap for tonight (July 19) covering development projects, a third SkyTrain station report, undue influence concerns, parks and more.
The special council meeting comes as a developer is hoping for reconsideration of an extension to complete paperwork for final adoption of its Westport Village.
Coun. Zoe Royer is expected to seek a second look at a proposal — defeated last week in a 3-3 tie with Coun. Amy Lubik absent — to give Andre Peller Ltd. a one-year extension for work required to receive fourth and final reading for its master-planned community on the city's west side.
Reconsideration may be raised at the beginning of the meeting as, under Port Moody bylaws, any vote may be called for reconsideration at the next council meeting.
Also on the agenda is first and second reading for a rezoning application for Areas B and C for Coronation Park, which is not part of the Wesgroup proposal for which a rezoning application has recently been submitted.
Also on tonight's agenda:
- Lower Cost Third SkyTrain Station Assessment
- A proposal by Mayor Rob Vagramov to solicit private sector interest and cost estimates for conducting the assessment of a third SkyTrain Station in Port Moody
- Results of a 2022 citizen survey
