2020-2021 Capital Program

Set for formal adoption on Nov. 26 2019, the 2020-2021 capital plan will represent the City’s largest one-time investment in neighbourhood infrastructure rehabilitation to date, following through on City Council’s focus on “getting the basics right.”

About $26 million – half of the core $52.7-million 2020-2021 capital plan approved by the Committee of Council on Nov. 12 – will be dedicated to upgrading road and utilities infrastructure in Port Coquitlam neighbourhoods.

The plan also includes funding for parks and playgrounds, sidewalks, multi-use paths, pedestrian safety and traffic calming measures, streetlights, downtown streetscape improvements, lane paving, the completion of the Port Coquitlam Community Centre and other key infrastructure projects.

It continues the two-year format introduced in 2017 that has enabled Port Coquitlam to obtain competitive pricing and complete projects on time.
