Conclusion of the Alternative Approval Process
Pitt Meadows City Council Adopts Park Designation Amendment Bylaw No. 2892, 2021
The City of Pitt Meadows sought approval of the electors by alternative approval process in accordance with Section 86 of the Community Charter. The question before the electors was whether they were opposed to the adoption of the Parks Designation Amendment Bylaw No. 2892, 2021 which removes the park dedication from 2,320 m2 of land directly north of the Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall as shown below outlined in yellow on Map 1. This exclusion was required to permit the development and construction of a new RCMP detachment on this site. To learn more about the Pitt Meadows RCMP Detachment initiative, please click here.
