Engage with the City on Ladner Village Revitalization at May Days

Residents are invited to drop by the City of Delta’s booth during May Days to discuss plans to continue the revitalization of Ladner Village. Staff will be in the May Days Market on May 25 and 26 to discuss several projects from the Ladner Village Revitalization Plan that the City is preparing to advance over the next few years.

“These projects were largely identified through the work of the Ladner Village Renewal Advisory Committee in their 2021 report. Given some time has passed, the City wants to re-engage with the community about the recommendations and provide residents with an opportunity to learn more and share their feedback before the City begins to move them forward,” said Paula Kolisnek, Corporate Initiatives Manager with the City of Delta.

The City has prepared a map identifying the key projects to support the discussion with the community. The projects are preliminary and additional engagement is planned before they proceed. In no particular order, the projects include:

  • A destination playground at Spot-on-the-Water Park
  • Upgrades to Chisholm Street wharf
  • A new multi-use pathway on Chisholm Street
  • A new tourist accommodation on the former Delta Hotel site
  • Upgrades to Elliott Street wharf
  • Additional pop-up parks and events to create pedestrian fun
  • A branding, signage and wayfinding strategy

Work on a few of the initiatives has started including consultation on the Bridge Street pop-up park, a feasibility study for a hotel, and remediation of the Chisholm Street wharf.

Anyone who would like to make suggestions or provide comments on these or any of the projects can visit letstalk.delta.ca/Ladner-Village to contribute your thoughts. 

“The City recognizes that Ladner residents are very passionate about their community and the Village in particular and staff are really looking forward to having these preliminary discussions about the projects before they proceed,” continued Kolisnek.

Staff will also have a booth at the Ladner Village Market throughout the spring and summer to speak with residents.
