A letter writer believes there are better uses for land near the old Surrey City Hall than a new tow yard.

Tow your idea away

I just received notification of a temporary tow yard coming next to the beautiful “old city hall” in Surrey,

I just received notification of a temporary tow yard coming next to the beautiful “old city hall” in Surrey (at Highway 10 and King George Boulevard).

Are you kidding those of us in Panorama/Sullivan who have waited for this oasis to blossom?

We need retail, not industrial. Look at the slow progress of clean-up of car-related lots near the Pattullo Bridge and along north King George Boulevard.

There is crazy development of nice townhouses and condos from King George to 152 Street and 56A to 64 Avenues.

This corner should be the terminal point for SkyTrain to South Surrey-White Rock with a constant shuttle to the South Surrey Park-and-Ride.

How about relocating the tow yard adjacent to the new city hall? Maybe we should annex from 64 Avenue south with White Rock.
