New landscaping concepts to be unveiled for Fort Langley Community Hall

Public input session being held July 26

The grounds surrounding the Fort Langley Community Hall could be getting an updated look.

On Wednesday, July 26, the public is invited to an open house where two draft concepts will be presented for upgrading landscaping at the front of the hall.

“It has become apparent to the FLCIS (Fort Langley Community Improvement Society) in recent years that our current layout does not invite interaction with the community to the extent we’d like,” said Gareth Abreo, president of the FLCIS, in a letter to Township council.

“We lack seating, performance space and an all weather surface. We want the Fort Langley Community Hall to become and remain the central gathering place of the community — a new public realm that will define the property for generations to come with new energy, vibrancy and relevance to rival any outdoor space in the Township of Langley.”

The landscape project is being spearheaded by the FLCIS, in conjunction with the Fort Langley Business Improvement Association. The company van der Zalm + Associates has created the design concepts.

The public info session will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Fort Langley Community Hall, 9167 Glover Rd.
