Fort Langley survey seeks feedback from residents, businesses

Survey can be completed on paper or online before June 30

What do you like most about Fort Langley? Is it the opportunity to walk or cycle? Is it the heritage character of the village? Its museums and cultural venues? Or is it something else?

What festivals, events or activities do you hope to take part in this year?

Which issues facing Fort Langley are you most concerned about?

The Fort Langley Community Association invites residents and businesses in Fort Langley to complete a survey to help identify matters of importance to the community. Feedback from the survey will be used to inform the Township of Langley of key community priorities and to guide future FLCA activities.

This is the third annual survey the FLCA has conducted. The association received 359 completed surveys last year, which identified transportation, development and character of the community, more public spaces, green spaces and community events as key priorities.

“Survey respondents put a lot of thought, time and energy into their written answers and we received 22 full single-spaced pages of written comments in addition to all of the multiple-choice responses,” said Andy Schildhorn, president of the Fort Langley Community Association.

Specific areas of concern were lack of parking, a need for a controlled intersection at Glover Road and 96 Avenue, re-routing commercial truck traffic out of Fort Langley and retaining the heritage character of the community.

The FLCA presented the survey findings to Township Council in October 2017 and also used the feedback to help identify goals and plans for the Fort Langley Community Association including hosting a well-attended Fort Langley Community Crime Prevention presentation and a request to Township Council for pedestrian-controlled crosswalk lights installed on 96th Avenue at Edal and Crickmer.

“We also continue to push for removing the official truck route through Fort Langley as well as proper intersection lights at Glover and Mavis,” said Schildhorn.

Completed surveys are due by June 30 and can be dropped off at Wendel’s Bookstore, Sweetgrass Naturals, Lee’s Market, Mangia e Scappa or Beatniks Bistro or can be completed online.

The FLCA mandate is to represent the opinions of the residents and business of Fort Langley to Township Council and others, and in turn, provide residents and businesses with information about issues of importance to the Village.
