District of North Vancouver council voted 4-2 to approve the draft Maplewood community plan, bringing their vision for the Maplewood Village Centre one step closer to realization.
Via the District. Maplewood Area Today//
Approximately 1,000 people live in Maplewood today in a mix of older, more affordable rental townhouses and low rise apartments, and a blend of old and new single family homes.
The Plan //
The Maplewood Plan divides the area into three precincts, each with its own unique purpose, character, and identity: 1. Maplewood Village Centre; 2. Maplewood North Innovation District; 3. Dollarton Highway South.
The plan will provide for a diversity of housing types to accommodate all ages, incomes, and family circumstances, including townhouses, co-housing, fee simple row housing, lock-off suites, apartment units, live/work and other innovative forms of housing.
Non-market housing is encouraged in Maplewood Village Centre as well as in the Innovation District. A minimum of 300 net new non-market housing units are targeted for the Village Centre. A portion of the roughly 900 residential units anticipated in the Innovation District should be comprised of a mix of non-market rental and below-market ownership.
Maplewood has an evolving village heart between Old Dollarton Road and Dollarton Highway, west of Riverside Drive. The plan aims to further enhance the village heart as a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly area with a mix of residential, retail, and community uses.
The Maplewood Village Centre Community Needs Assessment (2017) provides a summary of needed community amenity spaces in Maplewood to serve its growing population.
