March Mini-News – traffic events

We’ve planned a follow-up meeting on traffic issues for Thursday next week:  6.30pm, Thursday 3 April

– Traffic Action Working Group –
Last month we launched Time for Action – the report on our 2014 Brunswick Residents Network traffic survey. We’ve circulated the report widely, and yesterday met with the Moreland Council’s traffic planning staff to give them more detail and hear their initial response. With Council budget time coming up, our next meeting will briefly re-cap the survey findings, report back on the meeting with Council staff and organise priorities for further action. All welcome to come along to help our work on these issues.
When: Thursday 3 April, 6.30-8.00 pm
Where: Brunswick Bowling Club, 104 Victoria Street East Brunswick.
RSVPs: Appreciated, so we have a rough idea of numbers – just reply to this email.
