The City of Surrey is out with a lengthy list of infrastructure projects in hopes of securing federal cash promised by the new federal Liberal Government.
However, they’ll need $3.7 billion in funding for infrastructure improvements, according to City of Surrey staff in a report to council next week.
It includes the most ambitious plan for Light Rail Transit to link communities South of the Fraser.
It also includes funds for dike upgrades, an energy plant, and sewer and street light replacements.
Surrey also wants to build a new Spectator Sports facility, two new Performing Arts Centres in City Centre and South Surrey, and a new recreation Centre in East Clayton.
Staff say Surrey is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada.
The population is expected to grow 50% by 2041.
The federal government has committed to investing $60 billion in infrastructure over the next 10 years.
