    Re: Maple Ridge-Mission Electoral Boundaries

    I am responding to the request for input regarding the need for electoral boundary change in the Maple Ridge-Mission constituency.
    My position is that no electoral boundary change is required for Maple Ridge-Mission, and I base my position on the following points.

    The Mission portion of the constituency will have minimal residential expansion over the next four years. Mission would have to make changes to its OCP for a large expansion to take place.
    The Maple Ridge portion of the constituency will have moderate growth, but not sufficient growth to require an electoral boundary change.
    The expected growth in population will not create a work load problem for the current MLA’s Maple Ridge-Mission office structure which is a full time office in Maple Ridge and a part time office in Mission.
    An electoral boundary restructuring will be required after the GenStar residential development begins west of Mission; however this will likely not take place prior to the next electoral boundary review.
