City of Parks is changing
I wanted to share how saddened and disgusted I am at Surrey council repeatedly approving development plans in the current state of the economy and with little regard for future generations.
In July 2012, I moved into a home which the developer’s realtor promised me was “on a protected greenbelt” and said “it will never be developed.” We moved into a peaceful lush green neighbourhood where deer, rabbits and birds were frequently seen in the forest.
A few months later that has all gone, with only a small “buffer” around the still-protected creek. This morning we watched a deer panic as it ran around its former playground, now a construction site, trying to get out.
I thought Surrey was the City of Parks. This is so sad and we allow the developers to continue.
I imagine that one day I will be taking my grandchildren to a zoo to see deer and rabbits, certainly at the rate they are going, there will be none left in natural habitats.
