What's New

The Third Annual Southlands Bike-In is happening Sunday, 13 September at the Southlands Market Square from noon to 4 pm. This year's event focuses on building community among the organizations and residents that make up the City of Delta and all of the net proceeds raised at the event will benefit Reach Child and Youth Development Society and The Delta Hospital Foundation.

Similar to in previous years, we will be leading a bike parade from The Cottage Courtyard in Tsawwassen Town Centre Mall down to the Market Square. To take part in the Bike Parade please join us at the Cottage Courtyard at 11:30 am and the Bike Parade departs at noon. Bikers will ride along 56th Street to the gates of the Southlands, through the fields of the future Southlands Community Farm and down to the Red Barn for a day full of festivities.

This year’s event will be much larger than previous years and will have lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Activities and attractions include hay rides, a rock wall, zorb races, food trucks, a beer garden, music, a kids’ zone and more!

In addition to raising money for the community, the Bike-In also promotes healthy living and sustainable transportation. Last year the Bike-In attracted 500 – 700 people with over 400 people riding their bikes down to the event. We encourage people to ride, walk or run down to the event again this year and will have The Bicycle Valet on site to ensure bikes may be stored safely (and for free).

 Don't miss your chance to be part of this fantastic community building event!

"...the proposal put forward by the Century Group is unlike anything before, one that puts 114 hectares (286 acres) of farmland in public hands as well as improves the agricultural viability of the soil."

 

"After the Metro hearing wrapped up in a day, and directors heard from more supporters than opponents, it's highly likely they will amend the Regional Growth Strategy to permit the Century Group proposal to proceed."

 

"The hearing will be held on Thursday, May 1 at the regional district's offices in Burnaby, 4330 Kingsway, starting at 11 a.m."

 "He (Sean Hodgins) also told the committee that approving the proposed amendment would 'put Metro Vancouver on the map for what it can do for agriculture.' "

"The proposal put forth for the Southlands by the understated Century Group president was so innovative and ultimately its approval by Delta council so historic that it would make almost anyone behind it an instant news figure."

"Century Group application wins over municipal politicians and will now be forwarded to Metro Vancouver."

 

I think the project will stand the test of time," Hodgins said after the vote. "I'm just happy they voted as they did. I feel very positive we can go through with it."
