Mayor Dianne Watts, on behalf of Surrey City Council, is pleased to announce that Canada Safeway has agreed to surrender its store lease at the City-owned Cloverdale Mall effective February 28, 2007. In consultation with the community, the City will now be in a position to entertain redevelopment options for this key 8 acre site.
The Cloverdale Town Centre plan calls for the redevelopment of the Cloverdale Mall as a key component of revitalizing Cloverdale, along with the redevelopment of the Cloverdale Fairgrounds. Development options being considered for this site include higher density development involving a mix of residential and commercial use.
“One of the first initiatives I undertook as Mayor was to meet with Safeway to try and resolve the longstanding dispute over the Cloverdale Mall,” said Surrey Mayor and Cloverdale resident Dianne Watts. “I am very pleased that we have finally been able to resolve this issue and can now move forward with plans to redevelop this site in support of the Cloverdale Town Centre.”
