Township project gets another look


Langley Township council reconsidered, and passed, an application to build 244 units of housing at 204th Street and 82nd Avenue.

The Jan. 13 re-vote was called by Mayor Jack Froese, after a four-to-four tie, with Coun. Bev Dornan absent, resulted in the project being voted down in December.

The Qualico-developed project was the target of some criticism from neighbours, including representatives of the Latter Day Saints Temple, which is located directly south across 82nd Avenue.

Parking was one of the major issues, particularly whether there would be enough or whether it would impact the project’s neighbours.

Temple spokespeople also worried about having rowhouses directly across from their building.

The re-vote passed with councillors Bob Long, David Davis, and Kim Richter opposed. The development will now proceed to a fourth and final vote.
