Making Newton Town Centre a fun and safe place
Nestled in the heart of Surrey at the crossroads of 72 Avenue and King George Boulevard, the Newton BIA has been rocking the scene since 2014. They took the lead in breathing new life into the area by bringing together business members, grassroots organizations, community champions, and government.
Our mission? To focus on the fantastic four pillars of Safety, Area Enhancement, Marketing + Events, and Government Relations.
Wondering how we make things happen? Well, we get a little boost from a levy collected through property taxes by our friends at the City of Surrey. Our ship is steered by a volunteer Board of Directors, a diverse group of businesses and property owners representing all corners of the boundary.
Oh, and fun fact: the birth of Newton BIA was no secret – it came to life through business consultation and a plebiscite. Our rulebook? Well, that’s the constitution and a set of bylaws.
We are looking forward to exciting times ahead, and we’re thrilled you’re part of the journey in 2024!
THE SURVEY SAYS…
Participants in a survey conducted last year provided valuable insights guiding our strategic directions for 2024. The renewal survey marked the initial phase of the renewal process, contributing to the formulation of a renewal proposal and budget. The survey was accessible both digitally and in hard-copy format. During the period of May to July 2023, summer interns visited BIA members, and we got a great response which gave us insight on how to plan for 2024.
WHAT WE LEARNED…
We’ll be focusing on Safety and Area Enhancement as our most important areas of development and focus.
Safety and area improvement are integral aspects of our community. By prioritizing these areas, the Newton BIA will create a secure and aesthetically pleasing environment that not only enhances the quality of life for residents but also attracts new opportunities for economic growth and prosperity. Our continuing efforts to address safety concerns and invest in area enhancement will undoubtedly contribute to the long-term success and sustainability of Newton as a thriving and desirable place to live and work.
We will also continue our well-attended community events, such as Car Free Day in June and Spooktacular in October.
Other safety and area enhancement incentives are the Homeless Count; Shopping Cart Return, and the 137 Street Furniture.
We encourage you to visit www.newtonbia.com to keep in touch with all things Newton, and get involved with any of the activites planned throughout the year to make Newton the great place to live, work and play that it is.
