Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Federal Land Along 196th Street?
The property is located in Surrey and lies north of 36th Avenue between 192nd Street and the Langley border along 196th Street. It is approximately 300 acres in size, almost a half section with the exception of about 30 acres in the south east corner that is owned by the City of Surrey. Just over 200 acres of the Federal Land is farmed with the remaining 100 acres in forest.


Can we ask elected representatives to include the Federal Land in the protected percentage?

Where is the border between Surrey and Langley?

In our neighbourhood, south of 36 Ave., the border runs down the centre of 196 Street. North of 36 Ave., the border is west of 196 St. You can use Cosmos for Surrey or Geosource for Langley to confirm this.
