Opposition to Langley Urban Garden
This petition made change with 96 supporters!
Langley City is trying to build an Urban Garden along the powerlines on the corridor, running from 200th street east to 204th street. We oppose the location of this project for the following reasons:
1) The area is already heavily used. The natural green space is in continual use by cylists, walkers, dog walkers, and runners, as well as by birds and wild animals as habitat and a natural corridor. It is a natural ecosystem which should not be destroyed.
2) The community does not need urban gardens. The neighbourhoods surrounding the site have on average the largest lot sizes in the GVRD. Placing the garden more accessible to residents in high density residences such as Douglas Crescent and Fraser Highway should be considered.
3) It will create new problems. The recent destruction of green space in Aldergrove led to a rat infestation problem for the surrounding neighbourhood. www.abbynews.com/news/hordes-of-rats-rampaging-in-aldergrove-says-resident/
4) It will create public safety problems. Increased, non-resident pedestrian, vehicle traffic and parking will create an unnecessary increased risk to children and elderly in our community.
