Message from RCMP re open house and food bank

Message from Sgt Tyler Wickware of the RCMP:

Hello Everyone,

Normally this time of year we would be encouraging the community to participate in our annual open house and Pack the PC events, in support of the Surrey Food Bank. Unfortunately, as we all try to work together through this pandemic, there will be no open house or Pack the PC event this year.

I encourage those that wish to continue to support those in need in their community this year to donate to the Surrey Food Bank (link), either by dropping food off in person (list of locations) or, you can use the option to donate online.

We are also happy to accept non-perishable food donations at the Guildford / Fleetwood / Fraser Heights – District 2 office in a “drop-and-go” capacity up to December 24th, 2020.

Hopefully we will be able to gather and meet in person again soon. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Truck Parking Open House

Have Your Say!

Surrey Truck Parking Task Force  

Presenting Options Phase – Engagement begins Sept 28

Open House and Online Survey

The supply of authorized truck parking facilities in the City of Surrey has been a long-standing issue. Surrey’s Truck Parking Task Force is working to develop creative options to increase supply to better meet the needs of truck operators and the community. To generate practical and effective solutions by early 2020, getting the input of a wide range of local truckers and residents throughout the process is key.

Now in Step 4 of a five-step process, staff will present and solicit public input on draft options under consideration for Surrey’s Trucking Parking Strategy. Attend the information meeting to learn more and share your input:

  • Saturday, September 28 from 11:00am to 2:00pm at Surrey City Hall, Atrium (13450 104 Street, Surrey).

To learn more about the issues, visit the project page. Can’t make the meeting? Launch of the online survey and materials presented at the open house will be available on the webpage beginning September 30 through to October 21.

Care about transportation in your city? From commuters and cycling enthusiasts to transportation advocates, let’s chat.

Presented in partnership by the SFU City Program and the City of Surrey, Transportation Talks is an annual ‘citizen academy’ program. It tackles hot topic urban issues through a comprehensive introduction to the transportation system in the Lower Mainland, with a particular focus on Surrey.

You’ll hear from weekly guest speakers — policy- and decision-makers, planners, and engineers from city and regional governments, academia, private industry and the regional transit agency —  and discuss the influence of community, mobility, accessibility and more have on how transportation is planned.
