TWU eyes nearby rural land for expansion

December 8, 2009

BC-based Trinity Western University has applied to remove 16 acres of land from the Agricultural Land Reserve to clear the way for a campus expansion. According to the application, a 3.3 acre parcel is to be used for dormitory housing, and a larger segment of 4.6 to 5.7 acres is to be used for grad housing and programs, a "centre of excellence," and a research park. A number of parcels are to remain within the reserve, listed as agricultural and environmental research areas, demonstration programs, and "outdoor classrooms" and parkland. Langley Advance
