AERIAL PHOTOS: See how Abbotsford changed between 2018 and 2019

City has undergone record amounts of development in recent years.

A record amount of construction over the last couple years has transformed the face of Abbotsford. You can see it both on the ground, and from the air. New online imagery recently available on the City of Abbotsford allowed one to compare the city from one year from the last.

Last year’s satellite photo has been removed from the site, but not before The News was able to compare how certain parts of the city were transformed between 2018 and 2019. (The 2019 photos were taken very early in the year, as evident from the lack of greenery.)
