Our Success

  • Initiated a very successful graffiti removal program that is still the standard within Surrey. An average of 1,200 tags are removed or painted each year. The value of this “bulk” purchase program cannot be achieved by individual members.

  • Currently contract with Surrey Community Resources to provide the “Clean Streets” Program from April 15-October 15.
  • Work with the City of Surrey Beautification Coordinator to identify projects within Downtown Surrey
  • For three years the BIA had a planter project in the area of 108 Avenue and King George Boulevard. As of January 2009, our 13 planters were gifted to the City.
  • Since 2007, a Clean Streets Program to pick up litter on selected sidewalks has been in place with Surrey Community Services Society.
  • A street banner program for light poles on King George was started in 2006.
