COMMUNITY ASKED TO COMMENT ON HOUSING IN NEW WEST
Join us at the workshop and help shape the future land use in your neighbourhood. At the workshop we will explore different housing choices and the pros and cons associated with each. We will also explore and gather feedback the land use scenarios that we have created for each neighbourhood. The scenarios were created using the input gathered during February’s Neighbourhood Visioning Process and the research done over the summer. The scenarios will show some ideas about where the different housing forms and other land uses (e.g. commercial) could be located. Your input at the workshop will help guide us when we make the draft land use map for the city, which we’ll bring out for more public input at a future event.
The event is open to all members of the public and is free and includes lunch, but attendees are asked to register online at: https://
This workshop is part of the Official Community Plan update which will set out the vision, goals, and policies for the future of New Westminster. Since we already have community plans for Queensborough and Downtown, the focus will be on the rest of the city. For more information visit
Please share this invitation to the members of your residents’ association, your friends or other contacts who would be interested in attending.
We hope to see you there!

[A Review Of A Great Day Filled With Fun & Festivities]
A perfectly hot day complete with an abundance of sun paired with a pleasant river breeze greeted the estimated 10,000 'treasure hunters' who attended the 9th annual QCB BOARDWALK festival & sale. What an incredible event it was!
First, we need to publish the 38 winners of our Raffle to raise funds for
Now, we invite you to review the videos we have uploaded. There is nothing like video confirmation of the attendance, the music, the over 170 vendors, the thousands of items saved from landfills, the food, the quality of the event itself and above all - the fun that everyone had! The first video is a long one but well worth it. The vid travels along the entire event from west to east, approximately 3 KLM making it the longest outdoor festival and sale in BC.
No event is really a quality event without a proper ceremonial opening and the QCB BOARDWALK festival & sale is no exception. Thanks to Colonel Karen Baker-MacGrotty, Honorary Colonel, and QCB Senior Event Organizer James Crosty, we had a fantastic opening parade with bagpipes provided by The Society of the Officers of the Honourable Guard, representatives from the various military divisions within the The Royal Westminster Regiment, the Hyack New Westminster Ambassadors and other dignitaries. As they progress down the Boardwalk you can hear the enthusiastic reaction from the crowd as they part to allow the procession through.
Music plays a large component in the festival side of the 'festival & sale'. While there was great food, community interests displays, children activities, pet lounges and so much more...there were 4 stages featuring 7 great acts that entertained all day long. In fact, this years music component ellivated the QCB BOARDWALK festival & sale the largest music festival in New West. The following videos are only two of the popular acts that garnered attention by those attending.
Charity is a significant component of the festival & sale. This year the QCB selected The Croup of Five as the recipient for the funds raised through the very popular raffle. This year was the biggest raffle yet, producing the most funds, selling out every single ticket printed and awarded 38 incredible gifts supplied by the generousity of local businesses. Following are two videos that show the quality raffle area.
The QCB BOARDWALK festival & sale is entirely run by volunteers, is self financed replying on no grants or other public funding, encourages the generousity of local businesses, raises much needed funds for local chatiry and enjoys the in-kind support of the City of New Westminster's departments of
This event speaks to the power of people to work together for no other purpose than to do good for the environment, create a real sense of community and to offer a current and credible venue that attracts visitors to witness the spectacular Quayside neigbourhood and waterfront along side the mighty Fraser River.
