Grant Ward 20 Q for Langley Township (expanded only)

 

4. Would you vote in favour of a tax increase?

Yes. With the expected population growth of 2.5-3%, new amenities of parks and community centres are necessary, along with operational needs, additional taxes are necessary to maintain the health and quality of life our citizens have come to expect and why they want to continue to leave here.  

 

8. Should a tree protection bylaw be applied to the entire Township.

No. Our land owners have managed their property very well in all parts of the Township, including Brookswood/Fernridge, and they will continue to do so.  In those areas of development, the Township requires many more additional trees to be planted than the number cut down ensuring a positive growth rate of trees in the long term.

 

13. Should the Township commit to building the Aldergrove rec centre and pool regardless of lane sales?

Yes, the Aldergrove rec centre and pool is definitely needed somewhere in the near or mid term and funding of it through surplus municipal lands would go a long way to ensure a frugel fiscal tax levy was kept a low as possible.
