Read our response to the approval of the McKee Neighbourhood Plan here, including our seven action items requested of the City of Abbotsford.

McKee Peak is a unique gem of nature in Abbotsford that is under immediate development pressure. The adoption of the McKee Neighbourhood Plan bylaw amendment on June 26th, 2023 means several important tools needed to ensure its protection were overlooked.

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.
