Neighbourhood plan in Brookswood area topic of open house

Property  and business owners and residents of the Brookswood/Fernridge area  are encouraged to attend an open house revealing the latest on the Griffith Neighbourhood Plan on Wednesday, Jan. 15 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Fernridge Hall.

The Township of Langley will be hosting the open house to present preliminary and conceptual information developed during an initial design charette for the Griffith Neighbourhood Plan.

Since 2011, the Brookswood/Fernridge area has been slated to be the next community to be developed. But how that development is going to go, is still in the beginning stages with two open houses held last January to gather input. Those open houses were very well-attended and interest and concern that the area will turn into the next Willoughby is high.

The plan is named after Robert Griffith who, in 1901, owned 160 acres north of 36 Avenue and west of 200 Street. A stretch of 200 Street was once named for him.

In May 2013, Township Mayor Jack Froese promised mobile home park residents will have a place in the new Brookswood/Fernridge community plan.

There are several mobile home parks in the area.

Brookswood/Fernridge currently has a population of 13,000. The new Griffith Neighbourhood Plan could increase the number of residents  to 40,000 people over the next three decades.
