The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) and the City of Abbotsford are working together to develop the UDistrict Neighbourhood Plan and the UFV Campus Plan at the same time. The plans will help guide future development and growth of the UFV campus and the surrounding neighbourhood

The UDistrict Neighbourhood Plan will outline the proposed land uses, densities, built form guidelines, public spaces, multi-modal transportation network, and servicing / green infrastructure strategies.

The 2009 UFV Abbotsford Campus Master Plan, which directs the development of the Abbotsford campus, will be updated at the same time to ensure that both plans work together to further enhance this neighbourhood. There will be opportunities for public consultation throughout the project.

UDistrict Neighbourhood Plan


Neighbourhood Plans

Neighbourhood Plans (NP’s) are planning documents created to guide development for specific areas of the city that is either intended to create a new neighbourhood or accommodate redevelopment. These documents provide guidance to City staff, the public, and land owners on what the land can be used for and how it will be serviced. The plan must conform to the City of Abbotsford’s Official Community Plan (OCP).

Overview

In 2011-2012, City of Abbotsford residents, students, faculty, and many others came together to imagine what the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) Abbotsford campus and the surrounding neighbourhood would become in the next 30 years. This vision saw UFV continuing to grow and expand a campus that is integrated with the neighbourhood. The surrounding area is envisioned to become a mixed-use, vibrant community that is walkable with numerous amenities. The City of Abbotsford is working together with UFV on a planning process to achieve this vision: the UDistrict Neighbourhood Plan.
