If elected, what steps would you take to improve housing affordability in Port Moody?

Continue to develop policy to protect renters and rental properties, identify opportunities to partner (with land or monies) to support building of new affordable homes and make seniors housing a priority. Support laneway housing, small lot subdivision and more opportunities for secondary suites.

How would you balance Port Moody growth and livability?

Approve smart growth and development that benefits the community with contributions of public and park space, and increased walkability between neighbourhoods. Focus development around transit hubs. Continue to increase park space and amenities in all neighbourhoods of the City.

What do you believe is the biggest issue facing Port Moody?

Managing the impacts of development and traffic, and ensuring that parks and public amenities keep pace with a growing population, in housing that is affordable.

How can Port Moody attract employment opportunities so residents can work in the same community where they live?

With a new economic development manager, the city is primed to identify land and space, and develop a strategy to sell our city as an exciting place to start, grow or maintain a business here and establish local jobs.
