The City of Surrey has launched a web survey from June 28 – July 16 to gauge public opinion on the matter of legalizing secondary suites. The City has also commissioned Ipsos Reid to conduct a telephone survey, starting June 24 to include 1,200 completed surveys.
As you may recall last year the City held open houses on the subject of changing zoning bylaws to allow larger homes. Reacting, in part to the response to that initiative, the Mayor set out a strategy to first address the issue of secondary suites before separately addressing the issue of larger homes.
As the Ipsos Reid telephone survey is random and you may not be called, if you want to voice your opinion on this important matter please take the time to complete the web survey. There is a link to it on the City of Surrey web site. You can also link to it directly here.
The Mayor has formed a working group to consult on this issue. Among the working group are members of Surrey community associations, including the FHCA. In order to best represent the interests and opinions of the residents of Fraser Heights please take the time to let us know your thoughts on the matter. You can do that here.
