2021-2022 Capital Program

Reflecting City Council’s ongoing focus on getting the basics right – the core services residents and businesses rely on – the 2021-22 capital budget focuses on upgrades to the transportation network, utilities and other key infrastructure, including improvements to parks and trails.

More than $55 million will be spent over the next two years on projects intended to improve access and safety, boost the vibrancy of the downtown and ensure sustainable city services.

Key projects include the completion of the Port Coquitlam Community Centre (PCCC), funding for traffic calming and pedestrian safety, and improvements to the downtown that will include the extension of the Donald Street Pathway from Wilson Street to McAllister Avenue and replacement of the McAllister Street pedestrian bridge over the Coquitlam River.
