While workers diligently race to complete the final touches on the Bear Mountain Parkway in time for its grand opening, I caught up with Mayor Stew Young to find out more about him, and his no-nonsense approach to running the City of Langford like a business.
Langford is the fastest growing municipality in the CRD. To become West Shore’s business hub, Langford has attracted large retail and wholesale stores, light industrial companies, and dozens of small businesses with a streamlined re-zoning process to serve an ever-growing consumer market.
Business and population growth has allowed the progressive Mayor and Council to invest in community development. Beautifying city streets and creating more recreation options for their residents, indoor and outdoor, are just a few of the City’s public projects made possible by their increased tax base.
