Hammond Area Plan

The Hammond Area Plan was given final reading and adopted at the regular Council meeting of January 24, 2017.

To read the full plan, see Hammond Area Plan Section 10.5 of the Official Community Plan.

Hammond has a number of unique qualities combining to make it a neighbourhood with heritage character. Some prominent features include several early 1900's single-family houses, a historic commercial area, a 5.4 hectare baseball park, and a 16 hectare golf course. Local employment opportunities exist within the Maple Meadows Business Park, Hammond Cedar Mill, and nearby commercial areas.

Residents of Hammond describe it as a friendly and family-oriented place, where many neighbours know each other and get together for social events. Hammond is also valued for its smaller size homes with ample garden space, mature trees, and open drainage canals. Many residents also enjoy walking and bicycling through the neighbourhood.

Where is the Hammond Area Plan?

The Hammond neighbourhood is located in the southwest corner of Maple Ridge. It is bounded on the west by the City of Pitt Meadows and the Katzie First Nation, and on the south by the Fraser River; to the north are Lougheed Highway and Dewdney Trunk Road commercial areas, and to the east is mainly single-family development. The nearby highway network includes the Golden Ears Bridge, providing quick access to regional transportation routes.

Recent Public Engagement Processes

In 2021, the City undertook the Hammond Heritage Character Area process to explore potential legislative and regulatory tools for conserving the heritage character in Hammond. On July 13, 2021, an outcomes report was presented to Council recommending that the public engagement process conclude due to low participation from residents. The report can be found here. To watch Council Workshop, click here - staff presentation begins at 1:70:00.
