Hello BHCA Folks,
    I can tell you that at about 10:15 pm on Monday June 26/ 2017 the "Flamingo Block" Proposal passed Third Reading and the vote was "unanimous" in support of the proposal! There is a lot of hope in the success of this proposal and the positive influence it will have in the general area of North Whalley (Whalley's Corner's), and let's hope that continued positive development from Tien Cher will lead to better things for our neighbourhood of Bolivar Heights! I must say that Charon Sethi and his team have made a commitment to the Whalley area, and their projects have significantly improved the area of Whalley adjacent to 108 Ave, from Whalley Boulevard to almost 140 (with some other unrelated developments). I too look forward to the day that proximity to Whalley will be seen as an asset rather than detriment.

Several folks from BH were present and everyone of the approximately 10 speakers on the night spoke in favour of the proposal!

Well done everyone,
Mark

It was nice seeing penny Priddy, kudos to the developer for finally helping to get rid of the porno store and the Byrd   motel thing.

Announcement of Public Hearing and Third Reading for what is being called the "Flamingo Square" will be held at Surrey City Hall Chambers on Monday June 26, 2017 at 7 pm. This Development Proposal is for the piece of land that currently holds the Flamingo Hotel/ Byrd Pub, etc. This development is being lead and proposed by Charan Sethi of Tien Sher Group of Companies, who also developed the Quattro development and Balance on Grosvenor Road.

I attended the meeting last night, and although I think everyone (including the CoS Planners) would prefer that a road did not have to go through this beautiful park, it seems that in order to prepare for future growth and road demand, this road will have to be necessary.

I do think the residents should still advocate for Skytrain on 104 Avenue instead of LRT, but either form of train is going to require some more road network to be built in this area, so unfortunately, I can only see that this "two lane" road will have to be built. It will include raised cycling paths as well as Street Trees and Sidewalks, so will provide a safe way for Pedestrians and Cyclists to travel East-West in this part of Surrey. In speaking with a CoS Planner, it was mentioned that the construction of the Port Mann/ City Centre Bike Corridor (with Bon Accord Bridge), was also built partly as an acknowledgement that it would not be feasible to build bike lanes on 104 Avenue.

Does anyone else have thoughts on this network?

Yes, this proposal is outside of Bolivar Heights, but just thought I would mention that there is a proposal to put a new road through Hawthorne Park. It is to be called the 105A Avenue Connector, and seems largely necessary due to the future LRT train going down 104 Ave. The Information Session is tonight (June 7/ 2017) at Guilford Park Secondary, from 5:30-8:30.

     I think we should be arguing for a Skytrain Line down 104 Ave, which will only become more congested with future growth. This way traffic will not be as impacted on 104 Ave as it would with a ground level train. Then "possibly" this new road wouldn't be necessary, or at least not for a number of years into the future. Having a road like this through Hawthorne Park will sever the park into two chunks.

Newspaper Article attached, and information about the meeting below. If you have an opinion on this, there is a link to a Petition in the Newspaper article.
