Yarrow Neighbourhood Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City is currently undertaking a neighbourhood planning process for Yarrow and we want to hear from you!

To support future decision-making and to provide clear guidance to property owners and developers, creating a neighbourhood plan will ensure there is a unified vision for how Yarrow develops over time. The neighbourhood plan will build on the City’s overarching 2040 Official Community Plan (OCP) vision for this area as well as clarify expectations with respect to new development. The neighbourhood plan will address a wide range of issues relating to Yarrow including, but not limited to:

  • Refining the land use vision for Yarrow, including a review of properties with split OCP designations/ zoning and the transition between different land uses, older and newer development;
  • Parameters for new development and lot configurations with realistic expectations (respecting sewer and water servicing constraints);
  • Rural/ urban interface challenges and strategies to address them;
  • Environmental issues such as watercourses, species at risk, protection/ restoration, natural and storm water management, trees, flood risk, waste/ energy reduction, Electric Vehicle charging capability, etc.; and,
  • Opportunities to improve road / sidewalk connectivity, mobility and safety.

Online Public Engagement

Thank you to everyone who participated in the online community meetings that took place on October 4th and 6th. The meetings provided participants with the opportunity to hear a presentation about the project, and what we have heard so far from the community survey, including an opportunity for discussion on a few key themes such as "Residential Development", "Commercial & Industrial Development", "Yarrow Central Road", "Mobility" and "Environmental Protection, Recreation & Community Amenities".

  • Just in case you missed it, we have prepared a recorded presentation of the community online event (click the Presentation below). Please feel free to watch it on your own time and if you have any feedback or questions, please contact the Planning & Strategic Initiatives Department at 604.793.2906 or planning@chilliwack.com.

Findings from the survey and online community meetings will be summarized and posted online soon!

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The City has embarked on a planning process to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for Yarrow. The purpose of the Plan is to review existing neighbourhood conditions and provide clear direction for future decision-making on land use, development, and neighbourhood character. The Plan will be adopted as a bylaw under the Official Community Plan. 

    To inform the Neighbourhood Plan, the City has prepared a community survey to provide an opportunity for Yarrow residents to share their vision and goals for the future of the neighbourhood. Feedback collected through this survey will help the City to understand community values and identify opportunities for ensuring Yarrow remains a complete, healthy, and safe community.
