Silverdale Plan Update
At the District of Mission’s Council meeting of May 17 a report on the Central Neighbourhood of the Silverdale Comprehensive Planning Area (SCPA) was presented to Council for informational purposes. The purpose of the report (See the report on p.39) was to provide an update of the work completed on SCPA plan being developed.
A covering report and presentation of two land use options will be presented to Council on June 7. The intent is NOT to pick which option is best, but to allow comments on the elements of each option and to develop the “preferred land use plan.’
Broader engagement on the land use options is slated to start after the Council presentation in June.
Waterfront Revitalization Initiative – Masterplan progress update
At the District of Mission Regular Council meeting of May 17 a report on the Mission Waterfront Revitalization Initiative – Master Plan Progress Update and accompanying presentation were received for informational purposes (See the report on p.49).
The Waterfront Comprehensive Planning Area includes 296 acres of land which the District of Mission aims to revitalize. The presentation provides an overview of the process, objectives associated with the Masterplan, as well as an overview of the principles that will guide the community engagement process.

Tree Management Bylaw
Earlier this year the District of Mission Council directed staff to prepare a District-wide Tree Management Bylaw to help manage tree removal and maintain Mission’s tree canopy. Mission’s draft Tree Management Bylaw and the associated report was presented to Council on September 8th.
Staff have now started the public consultation process and are looking for feedback on:
- Tree coverage objectives;
- Permit requirements
- Enforcement, fines, fees and penalties; and
- General comments
The survey can be found here and will remain open from September 16th to October 16th.
There is a workshop with the Development Liaison Committee to discuss some of these comments on Sept 24th.
Further questions regarding the proposed tree manage bylaw can be emailed to email@example.com
See here for the Tree Management Bylaw Scenario, which contains a series of scenarios and is intended to illustrate how the bylaw would be applied.
