Brookswood residents opposed to development without a new community plan are rallying this Sunday at Noel Booth Park.
Organizer Michael McGarry said the Rally for Sustainable Community Development will be a protest over developments that will see trees cut from several properties.
There are five properties slated to be developed in South Brookswood, all moving forward under the 1987 community plan.
Langley Township tried to update the plan in 2014, but it was voted down after public outcry over density, population, and concerns over tree protection, aquifer levels, and adequate community services such as hospitals and schools.
A new process is underway now with more public consultation, but is not expected to be finished until the end of 2017.
All the properties now in various stages of approval will be developed with 7,000 square foot lots, the minimum allowed under the current community plan.
In announcing the rally, McGarry said 3,804 significant trees are expected to be removed from the five development sites.
The rally at Noel Booth Park will take place from 2-4 p.m.
