Election 2014: Kevin Mitchell answers questions

Township of Langley: Mitchell, Kevin - council candidate: He answers The Times' questions.

  • Nov. 4, 2014 3:00 p.m.

Kevin Mitchell is running for a seat on Langley Township council.

1- What is the most important issue facing the Township, and how would you propose to deal with it?

Unbridled development without supporting services in the Willoughby community. I would halt issuance of any further development permits, pending a committed funding plan for a new high school.

2 – Should there be restrictions on development in Willoughby until the situation regarding funding for new schools has been resolved?

See answer above.

3 – Do you support a pool and recreation centre complex in Aldergrove, and if so, when should construction begin? If not, why not?

Yes. Construction should begin once the community input has been fully considered and project scope has received public approval. Construction start will be determined based on budget, likely combination of debt and available capital reserves,

4- What type of development, if any, should be encouraged in a new community plan for Brookswood and Fernridge?

Brookswood and Fernridge both have the opportunity to redevelop as single family home communities with the benefits of proper sewer services. Larger lots can be subdivided, while smaller lots remain. The opportunity to build communities for seniors with single floor homes and other options for larger families can revitalize the two neighbourhoods, providing a true “age in place” region.
