The meeting began with Mayor Young and Councillors Denise Blackwell, Winnie Sifert, Lanny Seaton, Lillian Szpak, Matt Sahlstrom and Roger Wade taking the Oath of Office following their victorious results in the November 15, 2014 Municipal Election.

Mayor Young congratulated the Councillors and thanked them for their hard work and dedication to the City of Langford. He said job creation would be a major focus during the next four years before making the announcement about the new recreational facilities.

“This is more exciting news for our community,” Mayor Young said to applause from those in attendance. He added that the addition of more recreational facilities in Langford will benefit   residents and local businesses. They will create more opportunities for local athletes and young athletes throughout the region and across the country, and add to the world-class facilities already in place.

The remarks were greeted with enthusiastic applause from the crowd that filled Council Chambers to capacity.

Mayor Young accepted a cheque for $10,000 from Cliff Curtis of TJBS properties for the purchase of a community Christmas tree in honour of his dad, Frank Curtis. The Westshore Developers Association donated $2,500 towards the construction of a base for the tree. Mayor Young also made a number of other presentations during the meeting, including a 20-year Community Service Award to Mike Gibbins and Paul Rober from Victoria Contracting and Municipal Maintenance for helping make Langford a beautiful, vibrant community.

Mayor Young presented a Community Award of Excellence to Marg McKay of Village Walk West Apartments for the multi-family residential building at 790 Hockley Avenue. A Community Award of Excellence in public development was awarded for the BC Ambulance Station building at 2764 Leigh Road. Vern Cornforth received a Community Award for Excellence for commercial development for the White Spot at 941 Langford Parkway.
