Fort Langley Community Projects

Known as the Birthplace of BC, the village of Fort Langley is a great place to live and a thriving tourist destination for those who enjoy creative expression, learning about the past, and exploring the outdoors. Those attributes will be further enhanced as the Township of Langley proposes to transform Fort Langley into a hub that celebrates history, heritage, the arts, Indigenous culture, and recreation.

Two new museums, a library, conference centre, artist work-live spaces, an Aboriginal-themed lodge, new homes and shops, and parks, trail and shoreline improvements with community amenity in a restored Haldi House are proposed for Fort Langley, to be developed in partnership with the Kwantlen First Nation and the hoped for support from the provincial and federal governments. Read the full press release.

During the Township's call for input and public feedback, several individuals commented that the facades of the proposed housing/retail units along Mavis Avenue and King Street had too much brick, and that the designs presented were not reflective of the clapboard and wooden buildings that defined the early Fort Langley.

A few asked that the Township consider alternate building materials that would better reflect the community's true architectural heritage.

The architects have redesigned the proposed townhouses along King Street and the mixed commercial/housing on the corner of Mavis and King with public comments in mind. View the updated facades.
