Community Issues

Public Information Session on Saving Trees

An independent group of community volunteers have formed a committee dedicated to working with the City of Surrey to save trees on public land in the Ocean Park area. The group is hosting a public information session this Thursday, September 29th at 7:30 pm at the Ocean Park Hall (1577 128th Street, Surrey). Details on the flyer.

Air Traffic Noise

The following letter was received by the OPCA from the Citizens for AircrAft Noise Solutions (SCAANS) members

While it has been some time since we last sent out an update, SCAANS members have continued to advocate the aircraft noise/overflight issues that still affect our community. We have made our concerns known through membership in the SATF (Surrey Airspace Task Force) and the efforts of our citizen representative on the ANMC (Aeronautical Noise Management Committee).

Following is the link to a YVR survey. Public input will be considered as YVR develops its draft 2037 Masterplan. The last day for submission is October 31, 2016http://www.yvr2037.ca/survey

While planning for the future, the survey gives the opportunity to comment on issues of importance to us now. Question #12 asks us to rank the importance of various issues… namely to ‘minimize noise impacts to neighbouring communities’… which is definitely a priority in our community. The comment section also gives the chance to emphasize that ‘neighbouring communities’ should include impacted communities beyond the current 10nm limit. This is a point that has been in contention from the start and that SCAANS continues to advocate for.

NAVCanada ‘studies’ show that a large percentage of complaints regarding airspace changes drop over time. They count on this to validate their assertion that the noise/overflights are no longer an issue. However, we know that complaints drop as residents become frustrated with the lack of response to their concerns.

So, we ask you to please support our efforts and once more send a clear message that aircraft noise and overflights are still impacting our community. Many individuals sending complaints has a greater impact than numerous complaints from one person.

While WebTrak complaints are forwarded to Transport Canada (TC), we have discovered that by the time they are, the WebTrak data is often no longer available. We suggest that when you file a complaint through WebTrak you also contact Transport Canada. Indicate that aircraft noise/overflights are impacting you, and give the date and time of the disturbance, or even a particular time frame that was noisy. Unfortunately noise itself does not result in much action but the identification of low flying planes and overflights does.

Complaints can be sent to:

YVR…either to WebTrak http://webtrak5.bksv.com/yvr5 or simply an email to noise@yvr.ca.

Transport Canada…there is no longer an email option so complaints now go to the Civil Aviation Centre 1-800-305-2059. Choose option 4 “report low flying aircraft”.

MP Dianne Watts…email dianne.watts@parl.gc.ca or 604-542-9495. As the former mayor of Surrey she is well aware of the impact the flight changes have had on our community. She also sits on the Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure, and Communities (TRAN).

SCAANS…please let us know when you submit a complaint so we can help ensure that they are being counted and addressed.

SCAANS is currently corresponding with a citizen’s group in Toronto who are working on the same issues. Our goal is to require NavCanada to report any proposed airspace changes to the Minister of Transportation prior to enacting them.

Thank you for your continued interest,

The SCAANS committee

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.

Kwomais Park Update

In November 2015 the Ocean Park Community Association and members of the Ocean Park public met with the City of Surrey to discuss the additional parking lot and traffic changes coming to Kwomais Park.

During that meeting we were informed that the additional parking lot for Kwomais Park would be scaled down in size and would only be open during special events, like weddings. Another point that was made is the City is looking to use a surface material other than asphalt that could be used for other purposes when the parking lot is not in use. 

Do you spend time in Kwomais Park? And if so, what do you think the other purposes for this parking lot could be? We want to hear from you! Please email us at oceanparkvillage@gmail.com if you have any suggestions we can forward to the City of Surrey.

Trees + Ocean Park

There was a flurry of activity in regards to the development of three lots in Ocean Park and the removal of over 75 trees on the site. Frustrated residents are calling for an amendment to the tree bylaw for Ocean Park in order to protect existing old-growth trees in anticipation of new development in the area.
