Cloverdale BIA calls Annual General Meeting

A revised 2015 budget is on the agenda, along with a re-election of officers at the April 6 meeting.

The Cloverdale Business Improvement Association has called an annual general meeting tonight (April 6) to approve a revised 2015 budget – and hold a re-election of directors.

The City of Surrey has deemed that there was insufficient detail provided to the association’s membership on this year’s budget, as presented on July 9, 2014, according to a letter sent to Cloverdale BIA members.

The purpose of the April 6 meeting is to review the 2015 budget, which shows a new, strategic direction in operation.

The BIA is working with the City of Surrey on a number of beautification initiatives, the letter reads, including short-term landscaping on Highway 10 and Highway 15, along with plans for new gateway signage at Highway 15 and Highway 10, plus smaller gateway signs at the edge of the town centre.

The revised budget also sets out more money and resources for business recruitment, and earmarks additional funds for safety and security, plus communications projects.

The Cloverdale BIA has a $230,000 budget for 2015. The audited financial statements for the year ending Dec. 31, 2014 will be presented at the meeting, and will also be online for review at

The meeting runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Cloverdale Legion auditorium, at 17567 57 Avenue.
