City of Langley Launches Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan Workshops

As I posted about in November of last year, the City of Langley is working on updating its Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan. This process is finally ramped up and the City will be hosting a series of public focus groups/workshops about various aspects of parks, recreation, and culture in the City of Langley. The focus groups run from February 4th until February 12th. You can find out about the various themes of each focus group and sign up to attend by visiting the City’s website. The focus group that I’m most interested in is about Parks, Trails and Environment. It will be held on:

Date: February 7, 2013
Time: 4:30pm to 6:00pm
Location: Langley City Hall (20399 Douglas Crescent) - CKF Room (2nd Floor)

This will be a great focus group to attend especially if you care about building a pedestrian and cyclist friendly community.

As I’ve said in the past, I’d really like to see is an intersection between the Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan and the Master Transportation Plan when it comes to active transportation. There is a great opportunity to integrate the trails system into the main transportation system. If done right, it could provide an off-street walking and cycling network that could stretch from one end of the community to the other.
