  • IOCO lands... Our trials friends might have troubles too We want to hear from you!
    Over the past two years, BCG Developments (BCG) has been engaging with local government, stakeholders and residents on the early stages of planning for a proposed community in Port Moody and Anmore on the IOCO Lands. BCG, along with recognized Canadian architect Peter Busby, has reviewed input from two previous rounds community consultation held in 2015 and is currently exploring opportunities, concerns, and benefits prior to developing a sustainable master-planned proposal.

    From June 1 to June 30, 2017, a third round of community consultation is taking place for the IOCO Lands.
    We want to hear from you!
    Below is a summary of community input received in the past two years, as well as Our Vision and nine Proposed Sustainable Design Principles and Benefits for your feedback. The consultation topics in this third round of consultation will reflect and build on the feedback received during the first two rounds of community consultation.The full Discussion Guide is available for viewing and download here.

      The BCG lands are not close to any riding areas I am familiar with, certainly not the trials location near Burrard Thermal. Most of the activity will be east of the north-south aligned 1st Ave road to Buntzen/Belcarra. Here's the map of their property:

        I think only time will tell if the IOCO area will remain open to motorised use. I know the trial guys consider themselves "different" and they do have a long time status in the area. Only problem is an development like this will bring in new people to the area that will most likely not be very supportive of motorised use in the regional park or surrounding area, its unfortunate but in the non motorised user types, trials is just another dirt bike. Presently the trials guys ride either on industrial land or regional park land. We all know the direction that Metro Vancouver is going when it comes to fossil fuel locomotion. I also notice that the IOCO industrial lands are under a Special Study area. Who knows what the future will bring to the IOCO area, but I am sure the Trials guys are working hard to keep their trails.
