Fort community group serves up survey

The Fort Langley Community Association has sent out its annual survey on local issues.

The Fort Langley Community Association is asking residents and business owners to fill out a survey on what the most important issues are facing the Fort today.

This is the third annual survey by the FLCA, and last year’s effort saw 359 completed surveys returned.

Last year, transportation, development and the character of the community, a desire for more public spaces, green spaces, and community events were top priorities.

“The survey respondents put a lot of thought, time and energy into their written answers and we received 22 full single-spaced pages of written comments in addition to all of the multiple-choice responses,” said Andy Schildhorn, president of the Fort Langley Community Association.

Some of the specific areas of concern were a lack of parking, a need for a controlled intersection at Glover Road and 96th Avenue, and a desire to re-route commercial truck traffic out of the community.

Schildhorn said the FLCA will continue to push for the removal of the truck route through Fort Langley, as well as for an intersection light at Glover Road and Mavis Avenue.

Surveys have been mailed out or hand delivered, but are also available on the FLCA website at fortlangleycommunity.com.

Completed paper surveys can be dropped off at Wendel’s Bookstore, Sweetgrass Naturals, Lee’s Market, Mangia e Scappa, or Beatniks Bistro.
