Strathcona Residents Association:
Comments on proposed Centerm Expansion Project
 
Mr. Blair,
 
The Strathcona Residents Association (SRA) met recently to give neighbours a chance
to ask questions and express their concerns about the Centerm Expansion Project
(CEP) proposed by the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA). Liisa Hein and Lilian
Chau kindly attended our meeting to answer questions. As some of our concerns were
technical and beyond the scope of their expertise, they encouraged us to express our
views in writing.
 
Our comments are provided in the interest of the health, safety and overall well-being of
our community’s residents. Five key issues are our priority concern:
1. Air Quality Impacts, Monitoring and Management
2. Safety Concerns Related to Increased Road and Rail Container Traffic
3. Fire and Emergency Responses
4. Water Quality at Crab Park
5. Viewscape at Crab Park
