Our working group to build our community
In the CCP, we identified priorities and objectives for the future of Musqueam Village. These priorities addressed several community needs, including more and better housing, healthcare, and job opportunities, as well as steps toward self-governance, preserving history and culture, and providing resources for future generations.
The Musqueam Master Plan brings to life the vision and objectives identified in the CCP. Much like the CCP, this process will be community-driven, meaning that the master plan will reflect our community’s input.
Specifically, this master plan will take a community-focused approach to address the future development and preservation of the main Musqueam reserve.
What is a master plan?
The Musqueam Master Plan will help us answer questions like:
- What should new housing for Musqueam members look and feel like?
- What kind of spaces do we need for things like healthcare, education, jobs, and recreation?
- How should new streets be designed that focus on safety and accessibility for youth and elders?
- And many more!
Musqueam people have always planned and used our land to meet our community needs. This workshop is an opportunity to sq̓əq̓ip – to gather together and share our ideas, listen to each other and learn from each other.
