City to revisit Cloverdale Town Centre Plan

Residents are invited to express their wishes and find out more about what's involved in updating the plan that guides future development.

The document that guides future development in the heart of Cloverdale is being updated, and residents who want to find out more are invited to the Surrey Museum tonight (May 22).

The City of Surrey is starting the process of updating the Land Use Plan and Urban Design Concept for the Cloverdale Town Centre.

The city’s planning team will be on hand, explaining how the planning process will work, and seeking feedback from residents.

“At this point, we’re just looking for input from people,” said Don Luymas, manager of community planning for the City of Surrey. “What do they like about the Cloverdale Town Centre, and what would they like to see changed?”

The original Cloverdale Town Centre plan was done in 1990, before the completion of the new Surrey Museum and the Cloverdale West Village plan to redevelop the old Cloverdale Mall site.

“The older plan had some areas designated for parks and plazas that don’t really make sense anymore,” he added.

The area under discussion covers downtown Cloverdale between 60 Ave. and 54 Ave., from 172 Street to 180 Street,  and undeveloped land southeast to 184 St. that includes Kwantlen Polytechnic University and the Bourassa Farm property.

The city is updating all its town centre plans, starting with Newton, Fleetwood and Cloverdale, where relatively minor tweaks are needed.

“I don’t foresee dramatic change,” he said, adding the next step is to consult over the summer with stakeholders such as the Cloverdale BIA, the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, Surrey Museum and Kwantlen Polytechnic University before coming back to the public in the fall.

The meeting runs from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Welcoming remarks are at 7 p.m.

The Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Avenue.
