According to the City of Richmond spokesperson Kim Decker, “Since the updates to the Steveston Area Plan in 2009, there have been some recent concerns in the community about whether new development fits with the character of Steveston Village. On June6, 2017, Council endorsed the launch of public engagement on options for updating design and heritage policies and options for streetscape concepts for Bayview, Chatham and Moncton Streets.”

After the public consultation phase, Richmond city hall staff will report their findings to city council this October. The city of Richmond says it will take into consideration the open house and online comments, before the preferred options go to council for a decision on amendments to the Steveston Area Plan and streetscape plans.
