ANMORE – DEMOGRAPHICS

While actual population growth is low in relation to some other municipalities, Anmore
has experienced fairly steady growth over the past 15 years.

In 2012, the population was estimated to be just shy of 2,400 – a very large
increase since 1996, when there were only 1,000 residents in the Village.
This steady population growth has resulted in the creation of additional lots, the construction of new homes, and an increasing demand for more municipal services.

As a small rural community, Anmore isn’t expected to absorb a significant portion
of this regional growth – although by 2041, population is expected to almost double to
about 4,000 residents.

ANMORE – LOT SIZE

A 1978 plan for the village to have 15,000 residents by 1988 was vocally opposed by its residents, and they have instead insisted on preserving what they call their “semi-rural” goal. Consistent with this earlier citizen opposition to development, in a referendum concomitant with the municipal election of 2002, 70% of the citizens of Anmore voted in favour of maintaining the existing RS-1 zoning (1 acre lot size), 70% in favour of the 1-acre (4,000 m2) zoning with further enhancements, another 77% voted against half acre zoning, and 67% against a half acre every five years.

ANMORE – TRANSPORTATION

There are two main streets in Anmore both of which terminate at Port Moody. Sunnyside Road runs primarily north-south from the near sea-level western entrance of the village to the entrance of Buntzen Lake at the northern end of the village. East Road enters Anmore from Heritage Mountain, and runs primarily north-south until about the 4-kilometre (2.5 mi) mark where it turns and runs east-west until its termination at Sunnyside Road. There are several proposed plans to build another street between Port Moody and Anmore.

As part of Metro Vancouver, Anmore is connected to the TransLink public transit system and is served by the 182 Community Shuttle bus that runs down both major streets, Sunnyside Road and East Road. Supplemental summertime service to Buntzen Lake is provided by the 179 service from Coquitlam Central Station

ANMORE – INCOME LEVELS

In 2005, the median household income was over $100,000 compared to approximately
$65,000 in the rest of the region.
Proportionally, there are a notably greater amount of residents earning more than
$60,000 plus.

ANMORE – TRAILS

Described by many as “semi-rural,” Anmore is a relatively quiet hamlet that offers a serene setting with its unique location on the Burrard Inlet (across the waters from North Vancouver). The village is especially well known for being home to Buntzen Lake – a popular recreation area with a swimming beach and scenic forested trails.
