This spring, the Surrey RCMP and partners will once again be hosting a series of Neighbourhood Safety Meetings to share information about localized crime trends and current actions underway to address these crimes. Residents will also have an opportunity to discuss their concerns and make recommendations to improve safety in their neighbourhood.

The Neighbourhood Safety Meetings will be hosted by senior Surrey RCMP police officers and attended by local Community Response Unit and Youth Unit officers. Representatives from the City of Surrey’s Bylaws and Parks departments will be attending as well as those from the Safe Schools program. The City of Surrey’s Public Safety Strategies Director, Dr. Terry Waterhouse, will also be speaking at these events (with the exception of April 5th).

The Neighbourhood Safety Meetings will build on the success of previous events which have helped bring police and the community closer together to help resolve issues and foster a continued dialogue about public safety, says Superintendent Shawn Gill, Community Services Officer. Together with our city and community partners, we are committed to sharing information and engaging with the public to address their public safety concerns.

More Than Just Steel on Steel, How Surface Light Rail Transit Can Build a City — Ideas for Metro Vancouver From Toronto’s Chief Planner

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 7:00 PM[/b] at Council Chambers Surrey City Hall

City of Toronto chief planner Jennifer Keesmaat sees transportation infrastructure as much more than ‘steel wheels on steel rails,’ and much more than just a means of moving people from point A to point B. As the public face of Toronto’s many urban initiatives, Jennifer turns our attention to the opportunities that surface light rail transit can bring to a city—from connecting local people with local jobs, to re-envisioning streets and entire communities. Jennifer demonstrates that progressive city building requires a new approach to rapid transit and that the two are intrinsically intertwined.
Date: Wednesday, September 14, 2016, 7–8:30 pm
Admission: Free, but advance reservations are required. Reserve on Eventbrite.
Venue: Council Chambers, Surrey City Hall, 13450 104 Avenue, Surrey, B.C.
Surrey City Hall is a short walk from Skytrain's Surrey Central Station. See Map.

Registration for the 2016 Surrey and SFU Transportation Talks Program (previously known as the “Transportation Lecture Program”) is now open! Website Link is

I took this program in 2011, and found it to be very interesting, and it gave me a lot of insight into how CoS is able to grant funding for Transportation Projects like sidewalks. Mark
The program brings together residents, senior Surrey staff, and guest lecturers from TransLink, Metro Vancouver, and private industry to discuss planning and transportation practice in the City of Surrey. Participants will have the opportunity to design solutions to local transportation issues, with help from classmates and staff, and pitch these solutions to Surrey management for construction/implementation! Please see below to learn more.
About the Lecture Program
The Transportation Talks Program is presented in partnership by the City of Surrey and the SFU City Program. This annual course is a comprehensive introduction to transportation in the Lower Mainland, with a particular focus on Surrey. Speakers include senior staff from City of Surrey, TransLink, Metro Vancouver, the development industry and others. The program also features several field trips, including site visits on a chartered TransLink bus as well as an interactive walking tour of City Centre. You’ll learn about how transportation planning decisions are made, but it’s also a great opportunity to meet others, ask questions, and give back to your community by solving local transportation issues or making improvements.
No expertise is required, just an interest in transportation and/or community planning.
