Top five: Township sets its priorities for 2016

Township of Langley council has selected its top five priorities for 2016.

In the number one spot is the creation of a public communication report and strategies, followed by the completion of an updated Brookswood/Fernridge Community Plan, the formation and support of a Truth and Reconciliation Task Force, the completion of a parking bylaw review and the completion of a service capacity review.

The topics were selected during a strategic planning workshop held in January.

Township staff will use this list as a guide in the development of work plans.

Council’s priorities were divided into three categories: now, next/later and advocacy.

In the next/later category are five more topics: Metro Vancouver relations, Aldergrove downtown revitalization, Aldergrove Community Plan, an expression of interest for a music and lecture facility and terms of reference for a protective services master plan.

In the advocacy category are the 16 Avenue corridor, an OIC/land use bylaw alignment, a 216 Street interchange and the 208 Street overpass.

As the top five priorities are completed, they will be replaced by issues in the two lower categories.
