What is a masterplan?
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.
Musqueam Band Members and their families (including non-band members of Musqueam families) who live both in Musqueam Reserve and away from home are welcome to drop in any time to any of the sessions of the workshop.
Childcare and transportation support are provided.
There are also online surveys and other ways to get involved if you can’t make it to the workshop in person.
Please invite any Musqueam family or friends to the Community Design Workshop!
