Langley City is getting more new buildings including a gas station/convenience store and Tim Horton's on Glover Road near the Langley Bypass, townhouses, and a Mercedes dealership.
The projects came up for rezoning at the June 18 council meeting.
Imperial Oil owns the land at 6036 Glover Rd. which is zoned agricultural.
The first phase involves a car wash, 3,200 square foot convenience store and drive-through restaurant, a five-island pump stations (10 fueling positions) with canopy, one diesel dispenser, parking stalls and loading bay.
Imperial Oil initially proposed this project in early 2010.
"The subject lands were zoned A1 Agricultural Zone and within the Agricultural Land Reserve. However, the Agricultural Land Commission approved an application by the applicant for non-farm use in August 2011," explained City administrator Francis Cheung. "Additionally, the subject lands were reviewed by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure to ensure that all proposed access/egress points were carefully designed to address future road network plans as well as the Mufford Crescent Project. Other than that, no change since the project came before council in May 2010."
Council also gave first and second reading to the rezoning for the lot on the eastern edge of the City to accommodate a 4,324-square-metre (46,547-square-foot) Mercedes/Smart Car dealership.
First and second reading were given to a new condo complex in the 19700 block of 55A Avenue. The 19-unit townhouse complex is being built by a Surrey firm.
The dealership and townhouse developments will now be subject to public hearings at a July council meeting.
Details about the development applications are available in the June 18 council agenda on the City website.
