Message from another resident:

We are looking for care for our 2 kids (7 & 10) in September and for the School year. The kids are self-sufficient and really just need supervision once home from school. Looking for someone who can be at the house around 3:00 to meet the kids until I am home around 5 pm (kids will walk home).
Excellent for a high school student looking to make some extra money with little commitment. Monday to Thursdays. Email T5812690@telus.net for more details.

Message from a local resident: If you live on 128th street/Marine Drive and are concerned about speeding vehicles and motorcycles the only way we will get speed monitoring is if we all call into the non-emergency police line when it happens.

We are all aware 128th street is a cruising route with this type of activity peaking in the summer, however, it is also a residential neighborhood with plenty of kids riding bikes and crossing the street. A little respect for our neighbourhood would be appreciated. Please call if you see this type of activity.

Non-emergency line: 604-599-0502

LaRonde Development Open House

A notice of the public hearing for the Laronde Development at 13160 20th Ave (north of Laronde Elementary school) was issued to local residents surrounding the area last week. The public are invited to email the City Clerk (clerks@surrey.ca) or attend the meeting to learn more about the proposed development. Current concerns are the size of houses and lots and that the development is not in keeping with the surrounding neighbourhoods of Laronde, Amblegreen, Bridlewood, Huntington along with concerns of tree protection.

We NEED Forest Volunteers!

We are looking to put together a volunteer work group to take care of either a designated area in Fun Fun Park or Kwomais Park. The group will be given formal training on how to clip ivy and remove other invasive species by the City of Surrey and then meet every two weeks over the late Spring and Summer to clear that space of invasive plants.

Once the group has successfully cleared the designated space the City of Surrey will host a pizza party and volunteers will get to put new native plants back into the forest! Think salmon and thimble berries and more lovely native plants.

This is a great way to get involved in the community, meet new neighbours and give back to this beautiful area.

If you would like to participate please email oceanparkvillage@gmail.com

Ocean Park Community Orchard – Update

Last night (April 20) another public information session was hosted by The City of Surrey to address any concerns and questions local residents may have about the proposed Community Orchard on the City-owned passive space at Ocean Park Terrace (128th Street and 22nd avenue).
 
If you were not able to attend, attached are the renderings the City has produced for the project based on the initial vision the Community Orchard committee had for the site.
 
A few points of concern were raised by some residents who live in the direct vicinity of the proposed orchard. They included feeling that this piece of green space belongs to the residents of Ocean Park Terrace and that unless individuals reside in the Ocean Park Terrace neighbourhood they should not have any business or interest in doing something on the site. That there may be an increase in noise and activity on the site that could disturb the existing neighbours and that eventually the volunteers that spearheaded the project will lose interest and the site will become unsightly.
 
Some of the counters to those concerns were that this is a City-owned passive park space and that after the initial site analysis it was found that the space was rarely used. That sustainable projects like a community orchard are positive additions to communities. The orchard intends to feed the less fortunate, allow people of all abilities, skills and ages to learn about food production and ultimately gather the community. The noise and activity levels would likely not be an issue due to the thick hedge of trees and bushes that divide the land from the houses and that typically work parties are not loud activities. Lastly, the Community Orchard Committee is made up of a very knowledgable, passionate and well-educated group of volunteers, many who have high levels of education in horticulture. And through a partnership with Canyoudigit and through establishing relationships with local schools, community groups and College and University horticulture programs the site will offer educational opportunities through volunteer time ensuring that the orchard is well taken care of well into the future.
