March 20th, 2017 Council Meeting Notes: New liquor store building approved along the Bypass, plus unused lane closure

Yesterday’s City of Langley council meeting started off with a Committee of the Whole to allow people to comment on a proposed development application for a new building that will house a liquor store along the Langley Bypass.

The proposed building is to be located at 20670 Langley Bypass in the strip mall that currently houses La-Z-Boy, Visions Electronics, and Cora.

There were no comments from members of the public about this proposed building. I asked the architect of the building if the glass that fronts the Langley Bypass will be transparent, so you can see into the building. I was told no. I also confirmed that there will be bike parking as the Langley Bypass is a cycling route according to the Ministry of Transportation. As the proposed building conforms to the zoning and development guidelines of the area, it was approved by council.

Later during the meeting, council approved the removal of a small 55.3 sq. metre piece of land that was originally supposed to be used for a turn-around for a lane-way near the intersection of 204 Street and Park Avenue. This turn-around is no longer required, and the removal officially closed this “highway” to traffic by removing its “highway” dedication.

There were no other items that required council action on the agenda of last night’s meeting.
