Quotes

Mayor Darryl Walker

“It is my honor to present to you, on behalf of White Rock City Council, the City of White Rock’s 2019 Annual Report and Financial Statements.

The City had many major accomplishments in 2019, including the reconstruction of the damaged White Rock Pier, the opening of the Water Treatment Plant and the opening of the West Beach Parkade and Memorial Park.

With a focus on engaging with the community, White Rock Council members have led committees and task forces considering everything from the environment to the needs of our Waterfront businesses. The community was invited to an unprecedented number of public engagement opportunities in 2019.

In 2019, White Rock attracted tens of thousands of people to the Waterfront to enjoy Canada Day by the Bay, Tour de White Rock and Concerts for the Pier. Semiahmoo Days was combined with the 70th Anniversary of the White Rock Sea Festival for one large and successful celebration.

I want to thank our community and business partners, our government partners, our friend and neighbour, the Semiahmoo First Nation, and the leadership team and all employees of the City of White Rock. Together, we have accomplished much in such a short time.”
