Monday evening White Rock council approved spending $10,000.00 to hire a film location manager to document the various locations in White Rock that would attract the film industry to White Rock.

PSYCH filmed for a few seasons here where White Rock was portrayed as Santa Barbara, California.

The CHRIS ISAAK show also filmed some exterior shots here, in fact the little white house to the East of Gage Park was portrayed ISAAK'S house in the series. A young singer by the name of MICHAEL BUBLE filmed some scenes here in White Rock.

But let's roll back the years to the early 80's when the low budget movie THE BIG MEAT EATER shot numerous scenes in White Rock.

Miramar Bosa Project

City Public Information Meeting

MIRAMAR VILLAGE PHASE 2
A large crowd of White Rock residents turned out for the city hosted information meeting on the completion of the Miramar development in our town centre. Wandering through the crowd it was obvious a large portion of those attending were residents of the existing towers on the property. Their main concern seemed to be how their view would be impacted by the two new towers.

Also overhear when pressed for a start date the developers reps were overheard to say there was no specific date as of yet. One of their first concerns is what grocery store would anchor their commercial section.

Hang On They're Coming Back This Summer!

You can stop asking when THE SNOWBIRDS will be coming back to White Rock.

The Canadian Forces aerial team will perform their aerial ballet over Semiahmoo Bay Wednesday August 16.

 

Residents of Ocean Park are rising up to prevent a private liquor store from opening at the intersection of Crescent Road and 128th street in South Surrey.

The City of Surrey is currently reviewing a proposal for rezoning to permit a private liquor store on the corner of Crescent Road and 128th Street, near Fieldstones (project number 15-0446). The proposed outlet would be in very close proximity to elementary and high schools, Crescent Park, Crescent Beach, the marina and to busy community-based organizations such as the Crescent Beach Swim Club and Camp Alexandra. Residents are concerned that more readily available, accessible alcohol could result in increased impaired driving, public disturbances, vandalism, crime, violence, etc., particularly during certain times of the year such as holidays, high school graduation and the area’s very busy summer season.

A petition that opposes the proposal for a new liquor store at 128th Street and Crescent Road is growing. One of the concerns is that "the majority of customers at a higher priced, late night “convenience” outlet would probably be “opportunistic” drinkers or visitors headed to the park or beach."
