City Q1: 20 Questions for Langley City Council candidates

 

Dave Hall – No, the City need not make the mistakes of the Willoughby slope just to cash in on development dollars. Liveability is the key. Densification only in the Downtown core and the periphery. There should be some opportunity in identified outlying areas to advance the opportunity for more affordable Townhouse development to attract younger families but preservation of larger lots was supported only a few years ago with a wide process of public consultation.

Miriam Marshall – No.  Areas of our City require redevelopment and would benefit from increased density, such as our downtown core, while more established neighbours are fine as they are and increased density would likely not be welcomed by residents.  

Nathan Pachal – No. I believe that the current City of Langley official community plan is good the way it is when it comes to density. There is lots of potential for redevelopment in Downtown Langley and the surrounding area with higher densities as envisioned in the OCP. I see no reason to increase density in other neighbourhoods in the community.

Carla Robin – No, not all areas of the City. There are communities/neighbourhoods within the City that provide an option for those wanting a less dense neighbourhood to live in; and the foundation of a Community Plan is to provide a balance for all types of housing and business. I believe the current OCP builds out the community with an appropriate density, and proposed amendments should be given serious scrutiny.

Val van den Broek – No – Because I don’t want to see carriage houses on properties. I don’t want to wake up & look into my neighbour’s house because they’ve built right to the edge of their property line to make money on a rental.
