Expansion of retail businesses underway in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows

November 21, 2022

New city councils are looking to make waves in the retail business industry in both Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows.

Under the leadership of recently elected Mayor Nicole MacDonald, the City of Pitt Meadows is in the process of creating a brand new economic development strategic plan.

This document is something that has been in the works for months and will be unveiled during the next meeting of the economic development advisory committee in early December, explained Carolyn Baldridge, manager of communications and community engagement for the city of Pitt Meadows.

“Phase one involved the development of an economic analysis throughout the summer and fall. Business owners were interviewed and residents and businesses were surveyed,” said Baldridge. “Phase two, happening now, includes the development of a comprehensive five-year strategic plan.”

One of the main areas that Pitt Meadows city council hopes to help local retail businesses is by looking into what improvements can be made to the Meadowtown Shopping Centre, West Coast Auto Mall, and Osprey Village.
