Surrey City Development Corp. updates plans for Cloverdale and more

SCDC invites the public to an information meeting at the Cloverdale Rec Centre Thursday to discuss its mandate and development projects.

It’s been called Cloverdale’s front door – the vacant site surrounding the former Cloverdale Mall, awaiting redevelopment since the aging structure was torn down in 2011.

Nestled between the Cloverdale bypass and 175 Street, from 58 Avenue to 57 Avenue, the city-owned property is to be redeveloped as a blend of commercial and residential units, in phases, by the Surrey City Development Corporation and partners.

Ongoing environmental remediation of a former dry cleaning operation on the property has temporarily held back plans to launch phase one of the development.

Residents and businesses can learn more Thursday (Oct. 15), when SCDC hosts a public information meeting at the Cloverdale Recreation Centre (6188 176 St., in room MP 203) from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Representatives will discuss the corporation’s mandate and projects, including the Cloverdale Mall redevelopment.

According to Paul Orazietti, executive director of the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association, the SCDC has promised to install fence screening around the site, which has already been the focus of site preparation efforts, including sewer and sidewalk installation.
