This summer construction will start on a new covered court in Ladner. The City of Delta provided an update this week on the outdoor lacross box in ladner, which will be converted because of a $1 million grant from the Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program.
In addition to lacrosse, it will also act as a training facility for sports including baseball and soccer and will include basketball nets for more choices.
Work will begin this July, a news release from the city says having a covered outdoor multi-sport court will allow residents who have limited access to indoor spaces and the opportunity to enjoy a variety of recreation opportunities year-round.
“Over the past year, we have seen how important outdoor activity is for maintaining physical and mental health and overall well-being. Converting the outdoor lacrosse box into a covered facility will allow sport groups and the public to participate in outdoor activities year-round. It will also be a great facility for trainers and coaches of athletes of all levels,” said Mayor George Harvie. “The City and the region will see many positive benefits from these improvements, and we thank the Province for its investment in our community.”
The project is scheduled to be finished by spring 2022.
A new used oil and antifreeze recycling facility has opened in Tilbury. Bridgeview Marine will now be accepting used oil, filters, antifreeze and containers for recycling at no charge.
On Thursday (April 8), BC Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA) announced that it had provided Bridgeview Marine with a “return collection facility” grant that provided the Delta business with a 10-foot modified sea container and 1,360-litre tank.
The new facility will provide people from Delta and the surrounding areas with an easy, free and eco-friendly system to return their used oil and antifreeze materials, according to a BCUOMA press release.
Used oil can be re-refined into new lubricating oil or sold as raw material inputs for manufacturing or energy products, while used oil filters contain reusable scrap and antifreeze containers can be recycled into new oil containers, drainage tiles and parking curbs. Used antifreeze, meanwhile, can be refined and reused as new automotive antifreeze.
Have you ever wanted to start a chicken coop? Now you can, in your back yard!
The agricultural advisory committee of Delta is talking with city council about a zoning bulaw amendment that will allow backyard chickens, under certain conditions. If city council decides to continue, a public hearing will follow shortly.
This all follows last year's ammendment to allow chickens on additional single-detached residential lots. In response to letters and a petition requesting Delta consider allowing backyard chickens, council referred the idea to the committee.
"The amendment to the city’s animal control act would be reviewed after one year. The proposed regulations also includes an annual $50 licence fee.
Each chicken would need to be tagged to help with identifying any loose birds, while chicken owners would also need to register with the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture.
The plan would allow hens only, not roosters.
Several municipalities in B.C. have regulations that permit the keeping of chickens on residential properties including Vancouver. " - Sandor Gyarmati, Delta Optimist

Wednesday, January 20th was President Joe Biden's first day in office. That same day, he signed 15 executive orders and two other directives. They spanned immigration, environmental, LGBTQ and POC rights.
One of his biggest was canceling the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline to move oil from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, rescinding Trump's approval of a project long criticized by environmentalists.
Biden also extended the pause on student loan payments and nationwide restrictions on evictions and foreclosures, protecting people during the financial struggle of COVID.
To fight for POC rights, he signed an order launching a government-wide initiative directing every federal agency to review its state of racial equity and deliver an action plan within 200 days to address any disparities in policies and programs.
His other orders include:
