  • As the climate changes, many coastal areas can expect more frequent and severe flooding from storm surges and sea level rise. To help prepare Surrey for a changing climate and help  our coastal communities become more resilient, the City of Surrey is developing a Coastal Flood Adaptation Strategy (CFAS) for Surrey’s coastal floodplain area (see map), which is home to residential neighbourhoods, significant habitat areas, businesses and provincially critical infrastructure.

    The three-year project builds on recent and ongoing work in Surrey, and takes a participatory, community-driven planning approach that has directly engaged residents, the agricultural community, environmental organizations, Semiahmoo First Nation, neighbouring municipalities, and the provincial and federal governments.

We want to hear from more people via this online survey on the Mud Bay Area before March 30, 2018. The information collected from this survey will be used to inform the prioritization of coastal flood adaptation options. The results will be presented at the Project Open House on April 10th, 2018 between 5 and 8pm at the Rotary Field House (14600 Rotary Way, Surrey).
Would you like to be entered in our prize draw for a chance to win a $500 Visa Gift Card at the end of the survey? Contest Rules
Please note, this survey includes several short videos with subtitles, and will require 10 - 15 minutes to complete. Your feedback is vital.
