Ladner Rotarians have once again stepped up to help create a significant project for the betterment of the community.
On Tuesday (May 23), Rotarians met with the City of Delta in front of the construction on a new plaza at the entrance to Ladner Village. Construction began on March 16.
The project involves infrastructure and electrical upgrades to support new landscaping, seating, and lighting, including the construction of a new beacon sign for the village.
With the help of the Rotary Club of Ladner, the project will also see the installation of two new E-bike charging stations and a large timber drifter bench. These additions will encourage visitors to explore Ladner Village in an easy, sustainable manner, while also providing a social space within the Plaza.
“The Rotary Club of Ladner has been extremely supportive of our work and has played a valuable role in promoting and elevating social spaces to foster community growth,” said Mayor George Harvie. “Their contribution to this project provides an essential element to Ladner Village that allows visitors to thoroughly explore this wonderful area and all the businesses that call the Village home.
The Rotary Club of Ladner has made several significant contributions to Ladner over the years, notably with the recent installation of the Ladner Rotary Splash Park in 2018.
The Rotary Club of Ladner will contribute $25,000 to the Ladner Plaza project. As part of the agreement, signage will be placed on site recognizing the support from the Club. The project is expected to be completed by late summer 2023.
“Once again the Rotary Club of Ladner has met its commitment to provide funding for a partnership with the City of Delta,” said project chair Irene Forcier. “It is one of many projects the City has allowed Rotary to be involved with. Other projects include the Rotary Storey walk and a major project that will be welcomed back when the weather changes, the sun arrives and the local children can once again utilize the Rotary Splash Park, with a theme of local farming, located in Memorial Park. Also in the park are barbecues and an upgraded Gazebo provided by Rotary. A future project is in the works and we are continuing our relationship with the City to improve our community.”
