Hammond is a historic townsite in the heart of Maple Ridge. MODUS is leading a process with the City of Maple Ridge, BC, to create development permit area guidelines that focus on the form and character of the neighbourhood.
During the Hammond Area Neighbourhood Planning Process, stakeholders identified goals for neighbourhood precincts, including: revitalization of the historic Hammond townsite commercial area, high quality urban design, and sustainable development. The guidelines include green building techniques and a focus on improving walkability, trails and traffic safety. Emphasis has been placed on maintaining the unique character identified within each neighbourhood precinct and key heritage elements.
