where you get these images? It'd be great if they are going to get built.

They were prior plans for City Center area, as you can see... MANY are dead now. I have been told that some things may still be on the books.

So, Ive been in a battle with either Photo-Buckett or Flipper ( real names not used for legal reasons ). I have not been posting much and pretty much NO Images at all. I will begin to post again, and do everything I can to keep on top of as much of things as I can. I want to thank Yellow Fever, and my fellow mods for towing my useless ass over the last year or so.

Around my neighbourhood in Newton -



I had considered creating a thread for B.C. Palms and other forms of nature that are considered tropical or sub-tropical but wanted to see what posters think of the idea & if the thread would be used enough to warrant creation of the thread. Let me know what you think, & if its worth it.

I came across this on SSP - and was hoping someone here may have some idea's on it. From what Ive gathered, next to the Park Avenue site ( 3 towers U/C ) is a " oddly shaped lot " that in December of 2014 ( 7 months ago ) City of Surrey approved this for construction :

Does anyone have an idea on this?

I don't mind the shape.

hey rhino, you know you can post your photos in size, you can actually make them smaller if you think the photos are too large.

I have my zoom rate set to 135% so they all look big to me, and now looking at them through 100% they look small. Do you think they are to big?

If I only had a dollar for every time Ive said that, Id have at least...

Okay, Id only have a dollar.

Thank you for the FLICKR help, but Ive gone back to Photo Bucket and its idiot proof programing.

Wal-Mart in Scott-Dale... No, Surrey proper alone but I think there is one Im still missing... I could be wrong, likely I am because I cant think of it now. The Lower Mainland ( GVRD ) has I believe 15 individual Wal-Mart locations now...

New camera / smart phone helps a fair bit too. Look at the images I posted above
( post 113 )compared to post 117, the difference is glairing.
