Cloverdale streetcar plan resurfaces

Monday night, members of Cloverdale’s business community will learn more about a plan to run a streetcar line in the historic downtown.

The Cloverdale Business Improvement Association, the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce and the City of Surrey are working on a feasibility study to consider the installation of a heritage rail line on 176 Street between Highway 10 and 58A Avenue.

The Aug. 15 information meeting takes place at the Cloverdale Library meeting room, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

There will be a short presentation followed by a question and answer session with BIA members.

The presentation will look at how other streetcar systems operate, what the study mandate would be, how a streetcar might enhance local businesses and what else needs to be considered.

City staff and a rail consultant undertaking the study will be on hand to answer questions and get feedback.Follow the Cloverdale Reporter on Twitter and Facebook. View our print edition online.
