Fish and trucks WON’T mix!

For over the past year, FHCV has rallied in opposition to a proposed 77-acre semi-truck parking/warehouse facility on the south corner of 192nd St and 16th Ave in Surrey. G.G. Metro’s application for this development has now been withdrawn and the land in question will go back into the Local Area Plan process.

This is good news, nevertheless, we remain vigilant in our goal of stewardship and participation in responsible land-use planning in the beautiful Hazelmere Valley, especially given G.G. Metro’s declared intent to push for an alternate industrial use of this land.

Several members of the FHCV Steering Committee (representing stakeholder groups and individual landowners) sit at the City of Surrey’s LAP group. On November 13th, we held an event to share with the community how the LAP process works.  The LAP group met with City officials and other stakeholders again on February 7, 2017. A proposed land use plan was presented based on stakeholder feedack. A Public Open house will be hosted by the City in April or May 2017: this will be the last chance for public input. Please email us your thoughts and ideas about the Special Study Area and the lands of the South Campbell Local Area Plan.
