Community meeting to discuss longboarding tonight

Surrey RCMP, city officials and guests to speak at Sunnyside Hall

A community meeting to talk about longboarding is set for 6:30-8 p.m. tonight (Thursday) at Sunnyside Hall in South Surrey.

Surrey RCMP, city officials and guests will be speaking at the public safety and information event.

A notice advising of the meeting invites those interested to “join the discussion and hear from the longboarding community and city officials about compliance and safety, while learning valuable information about the sport itself.”

The issue has been a hot one of late in White Rock, where a push is on to change the city’s Street and Traffic Bylaw to ease restrictions on long- and skateboarding.

Sunnyside Hall is located in Bakerview Park, at 1845 154 St. To RSVP, call 778-593-3550 or email susan.caley@rcmp-grc.gc.ca
