The GHSA serves as a catalyst and educational resource, supporting residents, taxpayers and citizens in the following ways:

sharing information about sustainable development in Grandview Heights to

    • promote the retention of existing character trees, meadows, greenbelts and natural passive forest where possible. Urbanization and its effect on the natural forested condition impacts all residents, both present and future.
    • encourage development of social amenities, transit, infrastructure and related public service needs
    • work for the common good and benefit of all residents in Grandview Heights

supporting residents seeking to learn more about appropriate transitions between new urban neighborhoods and existing rural acreage homes by providing information

providing opportunities to share ideas and information that balance the interests of residents seeking to maintain their rural/suburban lifestyle and those living  in a more urban setting

providing a forum for area residents who receive our mailing list to express  ideas, opinions, and concerns. Share  photos and life experiences in and about their neighborhoods through the Blog

providing information and resources about City Planning and Development that enable  neighborhood-based participation. Helping Grandview Heights and area residents use City of Surrey satellite mapping and planning tools to keep abreast of changes in the  community

promoting community consultation that is fair, open and inclusive. This includes notifying interested residents about changes in their community and sharing ways to constructively participate in the planning process

communicating information about crime and safety in the Grandview Heights community that encourages positive safety practices

liaising with local media on matters affecting Grandview Heights and to employ a “best practices” approach where ever possible
