Expedite infrastructure to keep pace with development needs in Surrey School District.

This petition had 463 supporters

After years of over-crowding in schools in many neighbourhoods in Surrey British Columbia, we have reached a crisis point. Current growth projections clearly indicate that infrastructure will not keep pace with development.

The choice seems clear, either the province must immediately move up infrastructure investments to keep pace with growth, or the city must halt development applications where schools are already overburdened. To that end, Surrey school trustees have now asked Surrey city council to " temporarily suspend all new development approvals until the district receives more provincial capital funding."

We, the parents of children in School District #36 know very well that our children are attending schools so over populated that resources and play spaces are stretched to the breaking point.

We know too that livable communities require vital infrastructure to enable them to be successful communities. Our children should not be forced to suffer the results of poor planning and policy decisions. Therefore, we are asking the city of Surrey council and the provincial government to immediately come together to collaboratively expedite a solution.

By signing this petition, you are indicating that you support the actions outlined above, in support of the students in School District #36.
