Back in the ’90s when I was director of the city’s communications department, I remember staff and council working hard to rid the city of ugly signage.
It was a real struggle. We developed the slogan “City of Parks” to help create a sense that Surrey would be different and would aim to protect its natural character.
So I was shocked recently to see the monstrosity that has been installed along Highway 10 by the former city hall building.
What in heaven’s name is city council thinking to allow such a desecration?
The city’s new slogan is “The Future Lives Here.”
If this represents the future, God help Surrey.
