Cloverdale’s voice to Surrey council offers an open invitation

All Cloverdale residents are welcome to attend the upcoming annual general meeting of the Cloverdale Community Association.

The boundaries of the Cloverdale Community Association

Residents who’d like to get more involved in issues of planning, development and local infrastructure are invited to this year’s annual general meeting of the Cloverdale Community Association.

“The more residents we have as members, the stronger our voice,” Mike Bola, association vice president, said, adding the AGM will also decide the selection of the executive members of the association’s board of directors.

The elections will also include adding more members to the association’s roster.

“So far, we have a really strong membership and counting,” he said.

Bola invites residents to bring their concerns, suggestions and positive input for the association, which will then bring those forward to city council.

The association acts as a collective voice to city council, giving residents a say on issues affecting their community.

The society formed in 1978 to deal with issues that affect the well-being and development of the community. It’s is back on its feet and ready to tackle issues that are important to Cloverdale residents, thanks to a successful renewal drive.

Later this month, the association will be addressing the City of Surrey’s transportation committee asking the city to improve traffic flow on 64 Avenue between 177B Street and 196 Street by doubling the lanes, along with the possibility of reducing the hill at 180 Street.

The association’s AGM takes place Oct. 16 at the Cloverdale Recreation Centre, at 6188 176 Street, from 7 to 9 p.m.
