Langley City Council Approves Environmental Sustainability Committee Work Plan

Langley City has several committees and task groups that are volunteer-led. These committees develop their work plans within the scope of their committee or task group’s mandate. They also provide advice to City Council.

Every committee must have their work plan approved by Council annually. On Monday, Council approved the 2023 work plan for the Environmental Sustainability Committee, which includes:

  • Hosting the annual Earth Day event (already complete)
  • Providing input and reviewing the City’s proposed tree preservation and urban forest management plan
  • Hosting a Nicomekl River clean-up event
  • Investigating creating an environmental recognition program for the business community
  • Raising the “Point of Pride” program’s profile, including reviving “Street of the Year”
  • Investigating the feasibility of creating a “self-serve bicycle repair kiosk” at City Hall
  • Hosting a Repair-It Cafe event
  • Creating educational sustainability posters
  • Hosting a recycling event
  • Implementing edible planters (where fruit or vegetables are grown in the planter)

This committee has an ambitious work plan. With more people helping, more of the work plan can be completed this year. If you would like to participate on the committee, please email
