Langley isbeautiful

Editor: I am a new Langley resident, from another country. I chose Langley, because my friend who has lived in Canada for more than 17 years told me “Don’t go to Richmond. Come here to Langley. It is a good place. “

Then my family decided to come here. The facts indicate that we have made the correct decision.

I found how beautiful and liveable Langley is. This becomes more obvious when I go to Richmond, Surrey or Coquitlam and then return to Langley.

It’s quiet, it’s clean, it’s open and vast and it’s green. That is Langley’s own style and unique charm. No other cities can compare with Langley.

But I read there is discussion about building high-rise towers in Langley, possibly 20 to 27 floors. Is it necessary to build such a high-rise tower, considering Langley’s present population?

The Township must consider this very carefully. After all, building a high-rise tower is very easy, but changing Langley’s style isn’t. Are there other solutions to deal with the population surge?
