The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is hosting two public open houses on the following proposed amendments to its Land Use Plan:
The port authority recently acquired three properties in Vancouver, Surrey and Delta.
The port authority entered into a long-term lease (60 years) with the Province of B.C. on a site in Delta.
