City Q12: 20 Questions for Langley City Council candidates

 

Dave Hall – Yes, the City has always had a large inventory of parks for its size but the City has been left behind in terms of technologies. The City’s “all-weather” facilities at Buckley and grass fields are under-utilized. The City has lost field users to Township artificial surfaces and has clearly not fulfilled its own need. Baseball fields are in need of upgrading and there needs to be continued commitment to subsidies at Twin Rinks and MAP to insure that these “shared” facilities accommodate City use. Certainly the new Timms Centre will fill a gym and fitness/recreation deficit for indoor facilities. 

Nathan Pachal – Yes. I support the City of Langley working with the sports community to ensure that our amenities are meeting the needs of its users.

Carla Robin – No. But repurposed uses of existing facilities and revitalization of older ones can be addressed as per the Master Recreation and Parks Plan. Community and neighbourhood input should continue to occur to discuss the ever-changing needs in programming.  The Timms Centre will be a great re-addition to the community.
