A plan to revitalize a City of Langford neighbourhood will create a new cultural precinct that will showcase artists, attract new businesses and bring more people into a public space. On Monday, Langford council endorsed the project, in collaboration with the Island Corridor Foundation, to improve Station Avenue. The area between Peatt Road and Veteran's Memorial Parkway had become a concern for residents.
“For many years, Council has focused on expanding recreational opportunities," Langford Mayor Stew Young said in a news release. "Now we plan to turn our attention to arts and culture, providing new and exciting family-friendly options for residents and visitors alike."
The project will celebrate local First Nations, showcase Langford’s evolving cultural identity, and create opportunities for businesses. Funding for the project is through the Union of British Columbia Municipalities Gas Tax Fund.
