Truck park opponents plan community meeting

Friends of Hazelmere Campbell Valley to host gathering April 17.

Opponents of a truck-park facility proposed for the Surrey-Langley border are holding a meeting this weekend to update the community on the progress of the controversial application.

Hosted by Friends of Hazelmere Campbell Valley, the meeting is set to take place Sunday (April 17) at 1 p.m. at the Semiahmoo Fish and Game Club, 1284 184 St.

At issue is an application for a 77-acre commercial truck park at 16 Avenue and 194 Street, brought forward to Surrey city council last fall.

Community groups have expressed concerns about the potential environmental impact on the Little Campbell River, which runs adjacent to the property.

The project applicants, however, have said they are committed to protecting the integrity of the environmentally sensitive area.

A similar community meeting was held in December and attracted more than 150 people, who heard from several speakers opposed to the project.
