As for Surrey, Scott Rd area and big-box stores close to Surrey Central will see rezoning.
most of what is in vancouver along the expo line is/was established houses etc
its much easier to rezone where collingwood is to what it has become
but you can't kick out families and replace their homes with highrises and stuff
eventually as they sell off their homes it can happen but its gonna take a long time and developers aren't gonna hold onto one house in the hoped that the whole hood decides to sell at the same time
as for surrey - that old strip mall across from surrey central had a rezoning sign up last year - plans for highrises and more housing as well as retail and office space
no idea if it passed but anything is better than that ugly site
