The City of Langley has the highest per capita police officer to resident ratio in the region though some people still do not feel safe in some parts of our community, and at certain times of the day.
For example, people who were part of our recent community survey said that they didn’t feel safe in Downtown during some parts of the day.
One of the reasons why I ran for City Council was to improve our Downtown, make it a destination, and further reinforcing its role as the heart of Langley. To do this, we need to do things differently.
By investing in more public events, especially in the evening, we could bring more positive activity to Downtown Langley. This will not only encourage more people that visit Downtown Langley and support local business, but it will also drive away negative activity; making Downtown Langley feel safer. Of course, this will require resources.
With budget discussions about to begin, I wanted to get feedback from people who call Langley City home. Should we be investing in more public event and/or a preforming art centre?
Please take the 30-second survey that I’ve posted online, and let me know your thought!
