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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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 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 email@example.com
