The ever-changing New Westminster waterfront is the focus of this month’s New Westminster Historical Society meeting.
The meeting is on Wednesday, May 15 at 7 p.m. in the New Westminster Public Library auditorium at 716 Sixth Ave. For those who’ve attended in the past, take note of the new start time.
“In 1979, 40 years ago in 2019, the New Westminster waterfront area was sold and work got underway to change its general function from industrial to residential,” said a press release about the meeting. “This presentation will follow the April program, which examined the earlier waterfront area, to look at the various projects that actually changed this area of the city and created, in overall terms, the waterfront that the city has today. This is Part Two of a two-part series. The presentation will be offered by Earl Noah of Douglas College, Geography, and Archie Miller, historian.
Everyone is invited to attend this free program, and there’s not need to pre-register.
