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

Look into available government grants and possible partnerships to provide both affordable rentals and seniors' housing.

How would you balance Port Moody growth and livability?

We need to look at the city in its entirety, not simply project by project. We need build a strong local economy, increasing the number of local jobs while planning for amenities, greenspace, affordable housing and transit-oriented infrastructure, including pedestrians and bicycles, to create a holistic community.

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

Exceeding growth targets, lack of proper planning for the future and ignoring current traffic concerns, all affect the quality of life for Port Moody residents’.

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

 

We need to create an economic hub in Moody Centre featuring a couple mid-rise office buildings, low-rise residences and a hotel. We then need to actively seek out clean industries, explaining to them why Port Moody is the place to be! This will also contribute to our commercial tax base.
