President’s introduction and opening remarks

  • Web site – fhca.ca
  • Ed MacIntosh, president
  • FHCA is a volunteer non-profit organization – we volunteer our time (no payment is received by any volunteers) to represent the community dealing with issues that affect our community such as safety, traffic, development.
  • This is the first FHCA “in person” meeting since January 29, 2020 due to Covid restrictions.
  • FHCA helps shape policy and issues that involve our community.
  • If you have problems in our community, please send your information to us and we will look into these issues (go to Contact Us on the fhca.ca website or send email to Directors@fhca.ca). This is our primary site to collect comments from residents about community issues so we know about them and can send them on to the City.
  • Membership is free and open to all residents but donations are very welcome as they help pay for rental of meeting facilities, AV equipment, insurance etc. If you are not currently on the email list, go to our website and sign up (on the right side of website page – click on become a member).  You will receive notifications and reminders of the upcoming meetings each year.  There may, occasionally, be notifications of open houses or events affecting FH residents.
  • Special thanks to Liane McMahon for all her incredible and invaluable volunteer work over many, many years. She has moved and no longer resides in Fraser Heights.  We will miss her!!

  • Tips – to prevent theft from auto
  1. remove possessions from vehicle
  2. don’t leave garage door openers in vehicles or they may be used at a later time
  3. Park where well lit, lots of pedestrian traffic and/or surveillance cameras
  • Catalytic Converter (CC) theft prevention
  1. park in secure lots/well lit or close to entrances/exits with high volume traffic
  2. park with passenger side door close to curb or wall that makes access more difficult
  3. Highest number of CC thefts from – Hyundai Tucson, Hyundai Santa Fe, Mitsubishi RVR, Kia Sportage, Honda CR-V
  • Call RCMP non-emergency line to report any criminal activity (or 911 if currently happening) – no report, no stats. These stats determine areas that might need more police patrols.
  • Home security:
  1. Keep your doors/windows and garage door locked, even when home
  2. have a reliable person check your property if you are planning an extended absence
  3. have good lighting around your house and clear shrubbery from around house
  • Some of the Surrey RCMP Crime Prevention programs are Speed Watch, Stolen Auto Recovery, Community Engagement and Block Watch
  • Individuals 19 years and over can volunteer for any of the above

Block Watch – Yvan Salloomi, works with the City and the RCMP

  • This program is for residents to actively be involved in crime reduction in their neighbourhoods
  • Contact – SurreyBlockWatch2@rcmp-grc.gc.ca to start a block watch group
  • There are no minimum or maximum number of homes/dwellings needed to join – it can be as small as a few neighbours to a full street or area.

Development – residential:

  • We get our info on developments ahead of being posted. With townhouses, we have been working with a formula of 17 units per acre, double wide garages (not tandem) and 1 visitor parking spot per every 3 units so visitors will park on the lot, not surrounding streets
  • Townhouse developments on 100 Ave (17380 100 Ave – 45 townhouses)
  • Townhouse developments on 182A ST (94 townhouses)
  • Houses on 177A (27 houses)
  • Highcrest (Coast) – next development phase (54 units + commercial)



  • Transmountain Pipeline (TMP) update
  1. If residents have issues, contact TMP and copy the FHCA on the email.
  2. When we get periodical updates, these can be circulated to the community


  • Federal Electoral Boundaries
  1. Boundaries were recently reviewed to try to have 115,000 to 120,000 residents in each riding
  2. Potential future boundaries showed Fraser Heights split in two. 168 Street being the boundary between an east and west division.  Part of our community would be with communities on the north side of the river.


  • Members Comments/Concerns
  1. 164 St/104 Ave – before the pandemic, there was a proposal to install a light at that intersection as it would be cheaper and faster to install than a roundabout – provincial and city have to agree on this
  2. 164 St/108 Ave – many miss the 4 way stop and go through without stopping. Foliage obstructs the view of the 4 way when approaching 164 heading east on 108.  Contact the City to get trees trimmed.
  3. Bus line was proposed for east FH (338) – Translink was contacted but no answer has been received as to when this might happen. Talk to mayor and council to look at it again.


Next Meeting for the 2022/2023 year will be:

May 3, 2023 at 7 p.m. in the Fraser Heights Secondary School Theatre
