McKee Peak is a unique gem of nature in Abbotsford that is under immediate development pressure. A Public Hearing was held on March 6th to decide on the adoption of the McKee Neighbourhood Plan bylaw amendment. Now, we wait to hear Mayor and Council’s decision on March 27th.

If you love nature, and you feel that the needs of nature must be fully incorporated during the development planning process, your voice is still needed! Learn more about this important area and how you can help below.

The City of Abbotsford has created a Neighbourhood Plan for McKee Peak at the western end of Sumas Mountain. The future development will create homes for 20,000 people within 769 hectares, which is largely undeveloped and forested. It contains numerous streams, wetlands, and waterfalls, and provides habitat for wildlife, both common and rare.

The plan will have a huge impact on the forests, the wildlife that live there, and the beloved trail system used by outdoor enthusiasts from all over.
