Cambie Field Park Proposed Land Sale and Park Relocation
The Alternative Approval Process for Cambie Field - Sale of Park Bylaw 8927 - Sexsmith Road has been completed. A Certificate of Alternative Approval Process was issued, declaring that the approval of the electors was obtained.
Richmond City Council considered a proposal to relocate the current Cambie Field Park, located at 3651 Sexsmith Road, to a larger park parcel in the immediate vicinity. As part of a rezoning application for a proposed development, Polygon Homes would purchase the current park land, while simultaneously selling an equal area of land to the City, subdivided from 8331, 8351 and 8371 Cambie Road.
See Notice of Alternative Approval Process for map and detailed information.
How electors benefit from the relocation of Cambie Field Park
The proposed sale of park land essentially relocates Cambie Field Park. The benefits to residents and park visitors include increased street frontage for access and parking. As well, the park will be over 38 per cent larger partly due to the City’s park land dedication requirements for Polygon Homes’ rezoning application.
If electors support the proposed relocation
Council may proceed with the adoption of Bylaw 8927, the Cambie Field – Sale of Park, unless at least ten per cent (13,108) of the eligible electors oppose the proposed land sale. Those who support the proposed park land relocation are not required to perform any other action.
