Nicomekl River District Neighbourhood Plan

Langley City is growing, and the Nexus of Community vision aspires to shape our community into a more walkable, livable, and sustainable place for all residents! To do this, we’re creating a Nicomekl River Neighbourhood Plan which will guide land use change, development, and public space improvements in the area.

Why the Nicomekl River?

The word Nicomekl is from the Halq’emeylem language used by the Sto:lo people, meaning “the route to go” or “the pathway.” As Langley City continues to grow and develop along both river banks, the presence and value of this beautiful ecological feature can be enhanced. A Neighbourhood Plan can help make the river more visible, accessible, and attractive to the broader community. Few places within the City offer such a diverse and rich opportunity for placemaking and neighbourhood design!

What is the Process?

We are following a 3 phase process to create the Nicomekl River Neighbourhood Plan, and we anticipate completing the plan by March 2020.



Phase 1 is all about reaching out to the community to hear what you have to say. This phase introduces key issues and trends and includes a workshop and open house for community input into the development of neighbourhood plan concepts.

Event Times & Dates

  • Workshop: June 25, 9am-12pm, Mackie Room, Coast Hotel & Convention Centre, Langley City, 20393 Fraser Hwy. Register today!
  • Open House: June 26, 6pm-8pm, Main Floor, Langley City Hall, 20399 Douglas Crescent

Phase 2 is a deep-dive phase, where we explore ideas, themes, and principles in more detail using a variety of engagement activities. Consensus starts to emerge on key topics to guide the development of a draft neighbourhood plan.

Phase 3 is all about drafting the Neighbourhood Plan. There will be a final opportunity for residents to provide feedback to ensure the neighbourhood plan reflects the vision and aspirations of the community.
