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.

Open House, Proposed Development at 166 Street & 104 Avenue – May 9

The Fraser Heights Community Association has received the following invitation regarding an Open House on a proposed development:

Invitation to an Open House
Proposed Development at 166 Street & 104 Avenue, Surrey
Surrey Project No. 7914-0322-00

Date: May 9, 2016
Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Place: Fraser Heights Recreation Centre, Gymnasium #2 (10588 160 St., Surrey, BC)

On behalf of the developer, we would like to invite you to attend a Public Information Meeting where representatives from CitiWest Consulting Ltd and owners will present details of the proposed residential development at the above site.

The developer has previously hosted a public information meeting on January 7, 2016. The feedback from this meeting was taken into consideration when preparing the revised proposal.

The purpose of this Public Information Meeting is to seek input from the area residents for the proposed development and answer any questions, which may arise prior to presenting the project back to City Council.

The revised proposal is to rezone from the RA zone to the CD zone (based on the RF zone), the RF zone and the RF-G zone. The site is designated within the Official Community Plan and this will remain as Urban. There is a Development Variance Permit, which deals with setback relaxations due to tree retention, Trans Mountain Oil Pipeline right-of-way, and some irregular shaped lots. The proposal also includes park dedication, preservation of a watercourse, and a greenway over the TMO right-of-way, which includes a path.

Please join us with your concerns, comments and questions. We welcome your support. If you have any questions you may contact CitiWest Consulting Ltd at 604-591-2213.
