On October 3, 2014, President Mike Bola sent an urgent email to Councillor Tom Gill, Chair of the Finance Committee and Councillor Linda Hepner, Chair of the Finance Committee regarding safety concerns raised by residents using the walk way in the Bill Reid Amphitheatre Park along 176 Street. The walk way did not have adequate lighting during the night when in use by the pedestrians. After bringing this matter to the attention of Councillor Gill and Hepner, we are happy to say that they acted quickly and had staff speak to the Province of BC and BC Hydro to get the current street lights replaced with double davit poles. As of October 24, 2014, these street light poles have been changed and are fully operating. In addition, the Parks Division will be trimming the shrubbery and branches to allow consistent level of illumination along 176 Street. We would like to thank the City of Surrey and the Province of BC for looking after our residents’ concerns in Cloverdale.
