Your Residents’ Association
…and so much more!
Welcome to Your Quayside Community Board.
The QUAYSIDE COMMUNITY BOARD (QCB) is comprised of one delegate and one alternate from all twenty residential buildings in the geographical location known as 'The Quayside' in New Westminster, BC, Canada. The Quayside [Key-side] Community Board is a dedicated group of members representing just over 20 Buildings, 2749 units and an estimated 6875 plus individual residents in this close-knit community. QUAYSIDE is a jewel on the Fraser River and the board is dedicated to keeping it as such. Meeting on the last Wednesday of each month, this board works on issues and matters related to the well-being of their community. In addition, the board works with local and surrounding businesses to ensure that the members of the overall community continue to live in an area that is clean, safe, managed and above all enjoyable.
The Quayside Community Board is devoted to: Representing Residents, Community Issues, Assisting Strata Corporations, Housing Cooperatives and Community Planning for the Quayside area.
Please note: Everyone who resides in the Quayside community are members of the QCB through your strata and are welcome to attend this AGM

RA’s Loose City Planning Staff Representatives
Staff shortages are being used to justify the City withdrawing Planning Department staff from sitting on the many RA’s [Residents Associations] throughout the city. According to Planning Analyst Emily Huang “I am reaching out to you to advise that, unfortunately, due to a significant staffing shortage in our division, Planning staff will not be able to attend Resident Associations and the Quayside Community Board meetings at this time. However, I will continue to support the QCB by remaining your point-of-contact at City Hall. If there are any general inquiries or staff that you want to be connected to for specific questions, please feel free to email me. I will do my best to assist.” said Huang
BREAK-INS On The Rise!
Security concerns have been on the rise in the many condo buildings at the Quay. Suspects wait for driveres to lift the parking garage gate and slip in or they wait at the door to be let in via various ways. Your QBC asks all condo owners and renters to be diligent in making sure that you let no one in (if they are meant to be there they should not require help to access the building). If you see suspicious activity please report it immediately to your strata representatives, property manager or the police.
CITY UPDATE | Affordable Housing at Polar Landing
1400 Quayside Drive
[Excerpt from ‘REPORT: Office of the Chief Administrative Office regarding Affordable Housing’ page 4 | Date: July 11. 2022]
Poplar Landing, located at 1400 Quayside Drive, New Westminster, is jointly owned by Metro Vancouver and the City. Staff from both Metro Vancouver and the City continue to work jointly to develop an affordable housing project on this site.
Throughout 2020, Metro Vancouver and the City conducted numerous feasibility studies and identified factors that would impact the cost and complexity of bringing this site into a ‘development-ready’ state; soil remediation, ground densification, dike reconstruction and off-site works. These studies have identified site and soil conditions that significantly increase costs to bring the land to a development-ready state.
Given the challenging site conditions and costs, delivering affordable rental housing at this site is not without challenges. However, through 2021/22, Metro Vancouver and the City staff have explored more creative solutions to achieve affordable housing through this site. Both partners will continue to explore creative opportunities to bridge this site’s funding gap and anticipate reporting to Council in fall 2022
