104 Avenue Corridor and Guildford Town Centre Land Use Study

The City of Surrey is undertaking a planning study for the 104 Avenue Corridor and Guildford Town Centre, and wants to hear from Surrey residents about their vision for the future of these areas.

The project will support the City’s vision for LRT which will see the transformation of Surrey into a city of connected, complete and livable communities. The study will result in a land use and road network plan to guide redevelopment of this key urban centre and future LRT corridor.

The purpose of the study is to create a plan that will:

  • Support LRT ridership by focusing growth around LRT stops along the 104 Avenue corridor
  • Facilitate the redevelopment and enhancement of the town centre
  • Leverage investment in LRT to achieve community objectives

The study area is centred on 104 Avenue and runs from the edge of City Centre (140 Street) to the Trans Canada Highway. The study area covers fairly distinct single family, multi-family and commercial areas. One terminus of the future Surrey-Newton-Guildford (SNG) LRT line will be near the intersection of 104 Avenue and 152 Street (at the existing Guildford Bus Exchange).

Help Us Shape the Future of the 104 Avenue Corridor and Guildford Town Centre

We invite you to be involved in planning the future of the corridor and town centre. Stakeholders, including the public, are being asked to help us develop a vision for the study area, review plan alternatives and refine/recommend a preferred plan.

Please tell us what you envision for your community by completing a short survey by October 20.

Background

On October 24, 2016 staff brought forward terms of reference for two separate but related LRT corridor planning studies:

  • A vision plan for the integration of LRT into the urban environments along the proposed LRT corridors, and
  • A land use plan for the 104 Avenue corridor and Guildford Town Centre.

The first study was subsequently absorbed into the LRT project and is being undertaken jointly by Surrey and TransLink.
