A plan to block 72 Avenue at 192 Street this Sunday has been temporarily shelved after an upset group of Clayton residents managed to rescue their parking – for now.
The parking spots are being lost because of a long-planned four-laning of 72 Avenue. The project was given the go-ahead on Monday (Dec. 15) night by Surrey council.
Area resident Scott Anderson said he and several neighbours had planned a “park-in” on 72 Avenue to make their objection to the loss of parking known.
At a Thursday meeting with the city, construction on the project was stalled until Jan. 15, when it’s hoped a new parking plan can be put in place.
Anderson told The Leader Friday neighbours will be actively involved in that plan and if parking loss is still on, so is the planned blockage of 72 Avenue and 192 Street at a later date.
