We gave each council and mayoral candidate a questionnaire asking for their opinions and thoughts on a range of questions. We also instituted a strict word limit, with mayoral candidates given more room. Those who went over were told they would be cut off.

Question: What is one capital project that should be prioritized, and why?
The addition of a Collector Well to increase our water supply because we need to add water supply approximately 5 -7 years from now.
I don’t feel strongly enough about any specific project at this time to prioritize one over the other (of the many capital projects from the city’s list).
A capital project that will improve safety and health for all citizens (ie homeless village, policing, fire department)
The development of the Ledgeview Golf clubhouse. Its city owned, and the society has expended their reservces.
Use the fire insurance payout to rebuild Ledgeview. If members want a bigger and better clubhouse, require the golfers to raise funds to pay the difference.
Road repair/construction inter-city – safety of pedestrians/cyclists, accident reduction, improved transit stops

Stadium for university
Water and Sewer, you can’t build one without the other. Our growth needs a sensible long term solution for growth.
Fraser Highway but not intersections but sections like Ross to Mt. Lehman on Fraser Highway.
Rather than one capital project I’d focus on expanding or building facilities for youth such as Sports, Art and Culture assets outlined in the OCP Master Plans
As indicated in our OCP and Masterplans, our priorities have been set for the future.
A new swimming pool. In the PRC Master Plan, it is slated for 2043. ARC will be 72 years old. We are behind national guidelines for pools per capita now.
Masterplans guide our priorities. Ensuring that our infrastructures are adequate for the building out of our community. Ie Fraser Hwy, Water
With declining winter snowfalls, we should advance the expansion proposal for our fresh-water source. The Collector Well system is about $80 million (less the grants).
Following significant public input, capital projects are already prioritized within the adopted Master Plans.
The widening of Blue Jay. I believe it should be done sooner because there is a lot of congestion in that area during certain times of the day.
Homeless Shelter, We are nearing winter, we need our homeless off the streets for their survival. We also need programs to help people remain off the streets.
The multi-field complex slotted for DeLair Park should be moved forward. The need for fields is here now; our families need places to play today, not in 6-10 years.
Water service improvements because water is vital to life.
There are a few capital projects that should be prioritized, a New fire hall (Hall 7). Due this hall requiring some attention, in the near future.
A new water source has been identified (a collector well) and that should be our priority. A federal/provincial grant has been submitted. Foundational for our growth and sustainability.
Seniors stay at home programmes.
bike lanes , more people ride to work and school
