A group lobbying to save forested land in Glen Valley will have a chance to buy the property if they can find $3 million by mid-November.
Watchers of Langley Forests (WOLF) sprang up to protest the sale of two large plots announced earlier this year.
Council agreed to preserve one of the properties, but another section of land, with a total of five lots valued at $600,000 each, is still for sale.
At Mondays council meeting, a report was released setting out how WOLF can buy the lands.
The terms are that WOLF is to put down a $10,000 refundable option to purchase the land.
It would then have to provide the fair market price of $3 million by Nov. 17.
If WOLF does buy the lands, it would keep them park, trail, and education, and recreational purposes.
Members of WOLF were to discus the matter further on Tuesday.
The Township is selling the lands, which have sat vacant since the 1930s to the 1960s, depending on the lots, to pay for land purchases in downtown Aldergrove.
A new community centre, pool, and ice arena is planned for the area around the former Aldergrove Elementary building.
