Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Two Week Period of October 12-22, 2021

Landscaping continues and crews will begin installing paver stones in the social commons area over the next two weeks. Learn about what to expect during construction here. This week’s update, which covers the next two weeks follows below. There is no scheduled update the week of October 4.

OVERVIEW (new activity this period)

Landscaping and other work to complete the meadow areas and the social commons continue as construction winds down. Please note that while we received some complaints about late night paving work along Miller Road on Wednesday, October 7, this was not related to the Templeton Project. YVR regrets the inconvenience to people who were disturbed by this maintenance work and we apologize that no advance notice was provided to residents. For notice of specific activities related to the Templeton Project over the next two weeks, please see detailed update below.

If you have questions about the project and would like to connect with our community liaison Pam by phone or in person, please email to [email protected] or call/text 604-561-2836.


Areas of focus over the next two weeks include:

New work:

  • Install paver stones in the future social commons area.
  •  Tree planting (special thank you to a community member who donated three native trees to include in the mix)


  • Install irrigation (90% complete).
  • Excavate areas where the new thicket will be planted (75% complete).
  • Dust monitoring and watering as necessary.
  • Vehicles and equipment moving through the site.

Onsite equipment includes excavators, backhoe loaders, haul trucks, compacting equipment, and a forklift. Broadband travel alarms are in use on regularly stationed equipment to reduce noise. Traditional tonal alarms continue to be used on equipment that travels to/from the site or will be onsite for shorter durations.


Construction takes place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Equipment and machinery are turned on after 7:30 a.m. An update will be provided if work is required outside of this timeframe.

Please note plans, activities and onsite equipment are subject to change based on evolving project needs and weather.
