Latest-News-from-City-of-White-Rock

The City of White Rock is pleased to inform residents, businesses, and visitors that the Promenade, West of the White Rock (referred to by First Nations as P’Quals) will be open to the public by 12:00pm on Thursday, February 7, 2019.

The City’s Engineering and Operations department, along with contractors and clean up partners like BNSF Railway, collectively moved over 500 tons of logs and garbage. Hazardous materials such as fuel tanks, batteries, metal fragments and boat components were also removed.

“I am so pleased to hear that we will be reopening this area of the Promenade, two days ahead of schedule,” said Darryl Walker, Mayor of the City of White Rock. “Staff and our partners have been working hard to clean up the debris, garbage, and hazardous material since the December 20, 2018 storm hit our waterfront,” said Mayor Walker. “It is clear that much work still needs to be done, but we are hopeful that we can share more good news with our community about the progress we’re making around waterfront restoration efforts,” Mayor Walker concluded.

City crews, partners and contractors will continue to work on East Beach, which remains closed for repairs until at least the end of April.
