District of Kent Amasses Property

Agassiz buys three new properties along the Lougheed highway

The District of Kent now owns three properties close to each just past the Agassiz Rosedale and Lougheed Highway intersection.

The purchases were made public at the Dec. 8 regular Council meeting following an in-camera meeting of Nov. 24. The properties, which are mostly zoned residential, have slowly been assembled. They are at 1990 Green Road, and 6960 and 6970 Lougheed Highway.

According to Wallace Mah, chief administrative officer for the district, there are no immediate plans for these properties.

“They are just for future consideration of potential expansion of District properties,” Mah explained. “We don’t want to speculate as to what may go there right now.”

Mayor John Van Laerhoven says with a new Council, he would not want to assume what direction the Council might take with these lands.

“We’re just being forward thinking about how the community is growing,” Van Laerhoven stated Tuesday.
