Changing patterns of residential land use in the municipality of Maple Ridge, 1930-1960 Ivanisko, Henry Imrich
This study attempts to explain and account for the residential land use patterns of Maple Ridge for a thirty year period from 1930 to 1960. The residential land use pattern for I960 is presented in Chapter I; its development and characteristics are accounted for by the reconstruction of patterns for 1930, 1940, and 1950, in Chapters II, III, and IV respectively. Information from which the patterns of residential land use emerged for each decade was obtained from Assessment Rolls at the Maple Ridge Municipal Hall, Haney, and verified by municipal officials and observation. Residential land use in Maple Ridge began and spread from the centres of Haney and Hammond and formed a scattered pattern extending away from the Fraser River along the major avenues and roads. An uncontrolled pattern of scattered residential building characteristic of 1950 reached sprawl proportions by I960.
