Phase 1 Stakeholder Consultation: March 2010 - June 2010
Through 10 meetings and workshops between March and June 2010, stakeholders including representative resident, business, community, environmental and other groups, helped us identify the opportunities and challenges in the study area, and helped define the need for rapid transit. They also learned more about the rapid transit technologies and provided feedback on the best way to consult with the public.
Phase 1 Public Consultation: October 2010
In October 2010, the study team presented the recommended alternatives for rapid transit expansion for Surrey and surrounding communities to stakeholders and the public, and asked them to confirm if these were the right starting point for more work and identify other potential alternatives.
Through more than 600 questionnaires and 1,000 comments from people who joined us at four workshops and a webinar, and thousands who visited our website, the project objectives and ten alternatives were confirmed.
Stakeholder and public feedback was considered in designing and evaluating the alternatives presented in Phase 2 consultation.
Phase 2 Public Consultation: May - June 2011
In May and June 2011, the study team presented preliminary design assumptions and evaluation of ten alternatives to the public for their input. Based on the almost 400 feedback questionnaires submitted and over 750 comments received at four community workshops, key design assumptions were confirmed and refined. Three additional alternatives were identified based on public input and technical analysis. The detailed evaluation of the thirteen alternatives was updated to reflect those changes.
