Hawthorne Park – council meeting

From SaveSurreyParks:

Save Hawthorne Park – Final Stage of the Campaign~please stand with us Monday, Oct. 23rd!

The City of Surrey is planning to put a two-lane road through Hawthorne Park, located in North Surrey. This road will destroy a very sensitive ecological area and change the nature of the park forever. The road is being built to support LRT and to provide convenient vehicle access for several prime lots that are waiting to be developed.

We submitted over 5,000 petition signatures on July 24th to the council, and we then submitted over 13,000 Elector Response Form (ERF) signatures on September 22nd.

At this point the council has not changed their minds and is planning to start construction on the road in January 2018. We need you to stand with the community to protect Hawthorne Park.

This battle is not just about this park but all of our parks. If Hawthorne Parks falls then it is so much easier for the city council to go after the rest of the parks using the same process.

The council will be deciding Hawthorne Park’s fate at an upcoming council meeting, and we are asking you to attend to show your support for all our parks.

Can you please share this info to those on your mailing list? Thank-you for any help you can give.

Date: Monday, October 23rd
Time: Arrive at 6:30 pm to get ready (council meeting starts at 7:00 pm)
Location: Surrey City Hall 13450 – 104th Avenue

Open house on gypsy moth ground spray program in Surrey

Open house on gypsy moth ground spray program in Surrey

A community open house about the 2017 gypsy moth ground spray treatment proGypsy mothgram in Surrey will be held on Thursday, April 6, 2017, 3:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m.

Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting, which will take place in the multi-purpose room at Fraser Heights Recreation Centre, 10588 – 160 St. in Surrey.

Members of the B.C. gypsy moth technical advisory committee, representatives from the ministries of Environment and Agriculture, and other experts will be in attendance to answer questions and provide information about the 2016 trapping season and the proposed 2017 treatment areas.

The 2016 gypsy moth trapping data reveals that a population of gypsy moth appears to be establishing itself in the northwest corner of the Guilford neighborhood in North Surrey. Trapping results for the last three years show the gypsy moth surviving in this residential area bordered by the former Surrey Landfill and the south approach to the Port Mann Bridge.

If left untreated, the moth could threaten trees and farms in Surrey and spread to new areas of the province via vehicles and the movement of household goods and other materials.

The gypsy moth is an introduced pest species. The caterpillars feed on tree leaves and can damage forests, farms and orchards. In recent years, large gypsy moth populations have defoliated sections of forests and residential areas in Ontario and the eastern United States.
