2012 (Completed in 2013) Successful Sidewalk Project proposal (136 St- 112 Ave to 113 Ave) with City of Surrey, the City was also scheduled to do a sewer project on 136 St, so the timing was good for our project.   http://www.surrey.ca/city-services/13263.aspx

2012-2013, involvement with Metro Vancouver in the development of the “North Surrey Interceptor Project” (a plan to twin a MV sewer pipeline near to Bolivar Park). At present (2017), this project is “on hold”, and does not look likely to proceed through Bolivar Heights.

2007 Bolivar Heights Community Association was formed in response to a proposal to put Athletic Field lights into Lower Bolivar Park so that softball/ baseball could be played in the park until 10 pm, almost year round. The concern was that noise from the four baseball diamonds would impact enjoyment of the neighbourhood, especially after dark. “No lights in Bolivar Heights” was the phrase coined to present before the current Surrey City Council. Thus, the proposal to light Bolivar Park for the playing of softball after dark was refused.
