What makes a city work? How can we create walkable and vibrant neighbourhoods that invite people to linger, not loiter? Let's talk about street corners, public spaces, transit and busy sidewalks. "It's all about the corner" - Jane Jacobs

Pop- Up Park for City Centre. Great idea But when is it Newton’s turn??
City Centre continues to receive lots of goodies from the city. Look at this fabulous POP-Up Park on the link.
Meanwhile Southeast Newton languishes.
What is it going to take before attention is paid to the decline of South Newton specifically the King George corridor between 64th and 76th avenues?
Not just lip service.
Real attention followed by concrete action. Newton residents deserve more than to be the recipients of Whalley’s darker side. You can’t keep pushing the problem down into this community. Wonder how South Surrey would feel about having Newton’s problems.
This is not good for Newton and it’s not good for Surrey.
