Podcast 004 – The Growth of Langley – Planning For The Future
Oct 29 14
The Township of Langley’s population is growing, and it looks like it’s not going to stop anytime soon. Blair Whitmarsh, a candidate for the township council, understands the inevitability of growth. One of his concerns as a citizen and candidate is that council and the people of Langley need to great plan to manage the on-coming population increase in the township. Pretending it’s not happening is not a choice. Blair strongly believes the local government needs to commit itself to creating a solid strategy that will preserve the township’s quality of life.
In this podcast, Blair shares his concerns about the future of the Township of Langley and its need to develop and update plans for adapting to its growth. Whether you’re in Fort Langley, Murrayville, Brookswood, Walnut Grove or any other community of neighbourhood, your community needs an up-to-date plan. As the township’s populations grows, public services, water and sewerage, transportation, and many other necessary things that contribute to life we enjoy need to grow as well.
Planning as a community effort
Blair is committed to working with the council and with the people of the Township of Langley to develop a smart plan for a sustainable future. Listen as Blair talks about the basic ingredients to creating such a great plan: good leadership, and public hearings with community input and ideas. He hopes to join with the other council members to provide the leadership that will help the community design a future that Langley can be proud of. He’s eager to work with you to find out what you think. Make sure to vote on November 14th to elect Blair Whitmarsh to the Township of Langley council.
