Zoshia Ettenberg 20 Q for Langley Township (expanded only)

 

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

I don’t know. I think it is too soon for me to answer that question. We need to develop a system to encourage community input from all the stakeholders as well as the professionals especially on the impact to the aquifer.

 

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

Yes. There seem to be so many issues surrounding Willoughby that I would have to say yes. We need to re look at it.

 

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

I don’t know. What an open-ended question! Perhaps, perhaps not It all depends on the reasons and the other funding options.

 

6. Would you support road pricing to fund transit? 

I don’t know. I’m not familiar with road pricing and would need more information on it before giving an answer.

 

7. Would you support increasing property taxes to fund transit?

No. My question is our transit seems to be worst in the in greater Vancouver – why do we have to pay for everything considering we have been paying for their transit all along and now in order to improve ours we need to pay more, If we have to increase our property taxes to pay for it then all the other communities need to increase theirs. 

 

11. Do you support the construction of high rise developments in Willoughby? 

No – not at present. At this point there seem to be so many issues which we need to address before this one.

 

12. Should the Township open sales of municipal lands to public scrutiny in advance? 

Yes. My inclination is to say yes unless there are compelling reasons not to.

 

18. Should more firefighters be hired, even if it means a tax increase?

Yes, we need to meet the minimum standard which currently we do not. Ideally we should be able to do it without a tax increase.

 

19. Should more RCMP officers be hired, even if it means a tax increase? 

I don’t know. So far I have not seen any arguments pro or con.

 

20. Do you believe Langley Township and City should be amalgamated into one municipality? 

I certainly feel that we should seriously look at the feasibility and what Langley would look like if we did so. What kind of savings could be achieved and what programs could expand.
