Tom's (attempted) Ride Around Australia: NSW - Sydney | Cycling North with dcapslock | Scoop.it

Don't Disband North Sydney Council's Active Transport Voice!

Don't Disband North Sydney Council's Active Transport Voice! | Cycling North with dcapslock | Scoop.it

"Don't Disband North Sydney Council's Active Transport Voice!. 1. The Active Transport Sub-committee is a key forum for open discussion and to tap into ideas from pedestrians and bicyclists and the community at large"

 

Active Transport is more than traffic. Active Transport solutions need not take place on roads or road related areas and therefore a traffic committee is NOT the place for these issues to be discussed. Active Transport needs a voice! Support this petition against the disbandment of North Sydney's Active Transport sub committee. You can also take your voice to the chambers and speak out against the at the council meeting on Mondy night (8/10).
