Maple Ridge as a destination for eco-tourism and a hub for technology innovation.

Maple Ridge will be a city where people can work, live, shop and play.

Our tax revenues will be balanced by increasing commercial opportunities. We will focus on our potential to capture tourism dollars by creating authentic destination zones in the form of urban villages, with cafés and artisan/boutique shops. These destinations will be linked with our downtown by multi-use paths and trails in wooded areas and along rivers and streams. This strategy will act as a catalyst, by attracting hotels and resorts to grow our potential as an eco-tourism destination in BC.

An innovative technology hub as well as a post-secondary institution will facilitate cooperation between industry and education.  

These initiatives will help drive the density in our core to attract mainstream shopping and entertainment, giving us a vibrant downtown with outdoor cafés, restaurants and night life.
