David Davis 20 Q for Langley Township (expanded only)

 

1. Should a new OCP allow increased density in Brookswood and Fernridge?

Yes. We are going to have to. In certain areas in the new OCP, there will be room for increased density however, it must be designed with public input and considering what infrastructure will support it.

 

2. Should Township council act to slow down development of Willougby?

Yes. We need to pause, take a breath and allow the infrastructure to catch up with the development already in place.

 

3. Does the Township do enough to help ensure there are enough schools in developing areas?

No. The provincial government makes those decisions regarding funding and where schools go.

 

4. Would you vote in favour of a tax increase?

Yes. If it comes to public safety.

 

5. Would you support tolling ALL Metro Vancouver bridges to fund transit? 

Yes. I support a user pay system.

 

6. Would you support road pricing to fund transit?

 

7. Would you support increasing property taxes to fund transit?

 

8. Should a tree protection bylaw be applied to the entire Township?

No. However, I do on an interim basis where there is no OCP protection, such as in Brookswood and Fernridge.

 

9. Should developers be required to provide more low income housing in the  Township?

I don’t know. We would have to investigate it.

 

10. Should the Township create more bike lanes and public cycling infrastructure?

Yes. We have a policy in place now.

 

11. Do you support the construction of high rise developments in Willoughby?

No. At this point the current infrastructure is not ready for high density.

 

12. Should the Township open sales of municipal lands to public scrutiny in advance?

Yes. That is transparency.

 

13. Should the Township commit to building the Aldergrove rec centre and pool regardless of land sales?

No. Land sales are an integral part of the funding for the pool.

 

14. Should the Township ensure that roads, sidewalks and crosswalks are in place prior to the completion of new developments?

Yes. After basic services are in.

 

15. Is the Township doing enough to protect agricultural land?

No. The last term of council is proof that we are not.

 

16. Does the Township need more parks?

Yes. We need more green space in higher density areas.

 

17. Does the Township need more sports and recreation facilities?

Yes. Population is increasing.

 

18. Should more firefighters be hired, even if it means a tax increase?

Yes. This is a public safety issue and our population is continuing to grow.

19. Should more RCMP officers be hired, even if it means a tax increase?

Yes. This is a public safety issue and our population is continuing to grow.

 

20. Do you believe Langley Township and City should be amalgamated into one municipality?

I don’t know. This should be a public referendum.
