Jack Froese 20 Q for Langley Township mayor (expanded only)

 

Return to 20 Questions grid.

 

1. Should a new OCP allow increased density in Brookswood and Fernridge? 

Don’t know. The revised Brookswood/Fernridge OCP, if Council determines that it should proceed, should contain density and features that will be determined by the public following extensive consultation.

 

2. Should Township council act to slow down development of Willoughby?

No. In the last 3 years the rate of growth has slowed by 17%.  Current OCP’s  and NP’s were created years ago after extensive consultation with the public to guide growth in our community and we are seeing that growth now.  Therefore, it is very important that we learn what worked and what didn’t as we move forward with the new OCP’s and NP’s.  

 

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

No. 75% of the township is in the ALR and the Right to Farm Act would not allow for such a bylaw.

 

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

No.  Langley Township needs to ensure proper funding is in place before making such a major commitment, to ensure we lesson the burden on taxpayers.  We want to ensure that the pool does get built therefore, we need to keep all of our options open.
