KATINA GIESBRETCH [from surrey.ca] A City Greener celebrates Surrey’s vibrant and varied landscapes. The clean graphics and balanced colours reflect a harmony between the natural and built environment, both of which make Surrey a great place to call home. Giesbrecht says, “Our city has a wide variety of landscapes, from farmland and parks to rows of houses, urban skylines, and breathtaking mountain views. As a long-time resident of Surrey, I appreciate that our municipal government has worked hard to plan a city that embraces growth but still maintains the characteristics that make Surrey special.”
