We believe that Fort Langley deserves its boutique hotel. And it's what the community asked us to do.

We unveiled the boutique hotel concept almost two years ago. We completed months of public consultation. The community chose between two possible options. We proceeded with the concept residents asked for. All of the input we received during focus groups helped us create Glover Road West.

None of this seems to matter. We are stalled indefinitely by inexplicable red tape and outright obstruction from bureaucrats at the Township of Langley.

Bureaucrats have all but killed Fort Langley's boutique hotel. They have made up "requirements" out of thin air based on obsolete doctrine that make a hotel impossible, creating a derelict site in heart of our village. Our applications languish on the shelf as the years now roll by. They won't even allow us to remove derelict buildings.

Pleasehelp

We either have to abandon the boutique hotel and courtyard plaza — what the community asked us to do — or put in a stupid, unnecessary, dead-end lane to nowhere for garbage trucks, instead of an awesome destination for people.

Please register to help! Should an indifferent, faceless bureaucracy dictate, or should a community get to decide its own future? We should all have a say in the answer.

We want to build cool stuff that means something.
We want to do stuff no one else does.
And we want public input every step of the way —
to make sure we get it right.

Township of Langley bureaucrats want
a gross, dead-end, unnecessary
lane to nowhere for garbage trucks.
(even while we offer compaction and solutions)
