What's Next for the Properties around City Hall and Timms

Over the last several years, Langley City has acquired property around City Hall and Timms Community Centre. This year, people have noticed that the City has started demolishing the older derelict buildings on those properties.

The funding to purchase these property acquisitions comes from loans and City financial reserve accounts. You can learn more about this in a previous post.

Several folks have asked what the City will be doing with the property in the short- and long-term.

In the short term, the City will use some of the property for parking to support Downtown businesses as the City renews the Fraser Highway One-Way. A section of the property will also become a temporary public park space.

With SkyTrain coming, 56th Avenue may be realigned to form a new road connecting up to 203A Street to support SkyTrain.

In the long term, the City will use the land to support a new performing arts centre and expanded Timms Community Centre, as noted in the City's Official Community Plan.

Does anyone know the proposed skytrain locations in Langley? I know the white spot will be a station but will there be one out by city hall?
