Final Langley City Neighbourhood Meeting Tonight at Simonds Elementary

People at Langley City Neighourhood Meeting at Douglas Rec Centre

Over the last month, Langley City has hosted a series of meetings throughout our community. These meetings are open to anyone (no matter which neighbourhood you live in) and provide an informal opportunity for people to talk to City Council and staff about anything and everything about our community.

I know attending a Council meeting can be intimidating for many folks, so these neighbourhood meetings are set up like a trade show or science fair, with booths from the different City departments. You can visit each booth, ask questions and provide feedback at your own pace. Members of Langley City Council will also be wandering around, so you can come up to any member of Council to ask questions and provide feedback.

Like other members of Council, I have really valued the opportunity to talk with and hear from folks in our community at these meetings. I've heard some good feedback from people about housing, homelessness, and parks. I've heard clearly that folks enjoy our parks and public spaces and continue to want them to be top-notch. Around homelessness and mental health, I walked people over to our new Social Planning Services department booth so they could learn about the work that the City is doing to move forward on these challenges in a good way.

There are also Recreation, Finance, Bylaws, Engineering, Parks, Development Services, the Fire-Rescue Service, and the RCMP booths. There will be coffee and light snacks, a children's play area, and limited seating for folks.

The final neighbourhood meeting is today.

Time: 6 pm to 8 pm (You can arrive and leave at any time)
Date: October 24th, 2023
Location: Simonds Elementary School, 20190 48 Avenue
