Update: January 2014
The former public market property at King George and 64th Avenue has been sold again.
And still this building sits. A fence has been erected around the perimeter,but its gates have been breached many times and currently are wide open. Concrete barriers have been moved and the lot is now accessible to anyone who chooses, to drive right in. Teens looking for a shelter to party, squatters, drug users and sellers all make use of this dark dangerous hangout.
|A stumbling block on the road to revitalization.|
If we are truly serious about revitalization in Newton, wouldn't this be a good place to start? Sure would send a clear visual message that yes, Newton Means Business.
Is it really asking too much for the city of Surrey to enforce its Unsightly Property Bylaw?
