Dear Editor,

Why is there any chance that developers could dictate to our Langley municipal council on anything?

So here it comes again the Township of Langley wants another plan to divide up land in the Brookswood Fernridge area of south Langley.

The last plan was a complete disaster and the people who live in this area shot it down, and I am sure this cost us the taxpayers of Langley plenty.

So now after reading in the papers that they are going to take a plan out of history and try it. That is to divide and conquer. In that they want to divide Brookswood and Fernridge into separate areas or plans and that way they can cut the resistance in half and be able to overcome those of us who might not go along with their new plans. Now I believe the developers are so sure that they will get their way, that they are going right on like they have already have the plans done. Just take a drive east on 22nd Avenue into Fernridge Crescent and you will see one of the new kind of houses that they are building. It is on a parcel of undivided land but they have built it right in the northeast corner right up so close to the road that the people working on this house are always parked right on the road.

With all the building going on and the great increase in the number of people moving into Langley, does our council really have any plans as to how to keep up with the needed supply of clean water and sewer. What have they in mind as to how to handle the increase in traffic? It seems to me like they don’t even know what to do with 16th Avenue and all the traffic on this road. Why is it that in one paper we hear that a member of our council has even admitted they are concerned about the pressure that the developers are putting on the Township of Langley council? How is this?

Jim Glavin, Langley
