Today, Mayor Watts with Councillor Villeneuve, Councillor Martin, Councillor Rasode and Councillor Gill took the first step in moving City Hall to Downtown Surrey. While most people expected a shovel in the ground, Mayor Watts instead took to a Bobcat and demolished the old Surrey Corner Store in no time flat. On hand were DSBIA President Bill Rempel and DSBIA Directors James Stewart, Charan Sethi, Bob Dominick and Michael Wilson.
Expected move-in date: 2013. We can’t wait to hold our first movie night in the new civic plaza!
Who would have thought when the DSBIA Directors compiled a wishlist in 2007 that 4 of the 5 priorities for amenities in the area would already be in development? Still on the wishlist but anticipated soon – Science Building for SFU, Performing Arts Centre and a new Rec Centre.
