Second public meeting called on Cloverdale mall redevelopment

A second public meeting in a month is planned on Cloverdale West Village project.

Next Tuesday, the public gets another chance to question officials about re-development plans for Cloverdale West Village.

The update on the former Cloverdale Mall site comes a month after a meeting at the Cloverdale Recreation Centre that was sparsely attended by the general public, but drew about a dozen local officials and business leaders.

There, Surrey City Development Corp. officials were advised to better publicize the project, particularly news on how ongoing remediation related to a former dry cleaning operation is progressing.

The update – Nov. 17 (6:30 to 8 p.m.) – is at the Cloverdale Legion.

The mall was torn down in 2011 in order to redevelop the property in phases as a blend of commercial and residential units.

Ongoing remediation efforts to clean up soil contamination have delayed the project, but SCDC officials are optimistic progress is being made.

SCDC CEO Aubrey Kelly said Townline Homes has agreed to develop the southwest corner with a four-storey residential and commercial development expected to break ground in early 2016. A second developer, Mosaic, is looking to build north of the legion after remediation is complete.

A current project timeline has now been posted at scdc.ca, along with an extensive description of the ongoing remediation efforts.
