Since 2011, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has consulted and had discussions with local governments (Delta, Surrey, Richmond, City of Langley, Township of Langley and Tsawwassen First Nation) and the public regarding community legacy benefits that would be provided as part of the Project. The objectives of community legacy benefits are to bring lasting economic and social benefits to communities and the region. Ensuring a local and regional approach to the types of projects and initiatives is critical to their success. Feedback from local governments and the public has indicated community benefits may include the development of transportation infrastructure and recreational facilities such as walking trails and bike paths, a pedestrian overpass to connect a trail and environmental initiatives.
Community legacy benefits will continue to be the subject of discussions between the port authority, local governments (including Tsawwassen First Nation), Aboriginal groups and the public throughout the development of the Project.
