Chamber talks transit Thursday in Cloverdale

Learn more about the Mayors Council Transportation and Transit Plan for Surrey March 19 at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino.

  • Mar. 18, 2015 6:00 p.m.

Just a reminder to those wondering what the Mayors Transit Plan outlines for Surrey –  the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce and the Surrey Board of Trade hosts a transit town hall forum Thursday afternoon at Fraser Downs.

The March 19 forum is one of four in the city highlighting the Mayors Council Transportation and Transit Plan for Surrey.

Ballots for Metro Vancouver’s mail-in transit and transportation plebiscite were sent out earlier this week. Registered voters have from March 16 to May 29 to cast their ballot.

Voters are being asked if they will support a new .5 per cent Congestion Improvement Tax to fund the plan. If it passes it would pay for light rail lines in Surrey, a SkyTrain extension and improvements to roads and transit structures.

The Cloverdale event runs from 4 to 5 p.m. at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino. To register, contact the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce at 604-574-9122 or email
