Langley is asking its citizens to help decide rules for further housing developments, such as the Coles Valley Neighborhood project.

A community workshop invites public input from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26 at the Soundview Center.

Planning consultant PlaceMakers will lead the workshop and write a first draft of the development regulations, with assistance from community members present.

The Langley Planning Advisory Board and City Council will be reviewing the draft rules.

According to an announcement from the city, Langley’s Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2018 to help sustain its character as a “vibrant historical coastal town.”

As part of that plan, land use calls for different types of development that zoning currently doesn’t enable.

The first draft of rules would provide ideas for mixed-use development that the city would then consider.
