    I have attached additional information related to my original presentation. My map outlines 10 electoral ridings for Surrey, similar to my presentation. The map outlines how boundaries should be created based on Arterial Roads and elementary school catchments. Arterial roads create natural boundaries that communities understand and are clearly delineated. I also have added population projections for 2017 based on the current increases that have been projected to 2014. Surrey is the fastest growing region in BC and is forecast to maintain this growth rate.

    Neighborhood Population 2017
    1. Surrey-Whalley 63000
    2. Surrey-West Newton 59000
    3. Surrey-Panorama 55000
    4. Surrey-White Rock 60000
    5. Surrey-Guildford 56000
    6. Surrey-Fleetwood 58000
    7. Surrey-East Newton 62000
    8. Surrey-Sullivan 59000
    9. Surrey-Fraser Heights 54000
    10. Surrey-Cloverdale 63000

    As stated during my presentation, I have graduated with a degree in Geography & Economics, worked at the City of Surrey planning department and I currently work for BC Assessment which has provided me with the education and work experience to conduct detailed demographic and market research. Furthermore, I have lived in Surrey for the past 30 years.

    Please consider this new information as I was able spend some additional time on this project.

    Thanks,
