Fort Langley initiatives include:
- A library, two museums, and a small conference center with a presentation theatre that will be housed under one roof to create a new cultural center for the community
- Townhouses and detached homes on the lands adjacent the new cultural center
- A mixed retail/condo development on the current site of the Langley Centennial Museum
- A pedestrian overpass linking the new cultural facility to a realigned TransCanada Trails system
- Restoration and relocation of the historic Jacob Haldi House on the Fraser River, east of its current location, as a community amenity for paddlers and artists
- An artist work/live housing project with space dedicated for small Aboriginal-themed lodge accommodations on the current site of the Bedford House
- Improvements to the Fort-to-Fort Trail in front of the new development that would create outdoor spaces for arts and crafts activities
Kwantlen First Nation will be a key partner in moving the initiatives forward, Tulumello said, noting he has had numerous discussions with the Seyem’ Qwantlen Business Group, KFN’s business development arm, regarding some of the projects.
This will be a chance to share the information about the Fort Langley projects with the community members and staff members who were unable to attend the first open house.
