Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

The long awaited, as far as I am concerned and I know likewise some residents in Black Forest, LATM for Black Forest has commenced.

Our administration have been active this year obtaining traffic counts (speed, numbers of cars, accident counts etc) for the entire Black Forest network of streets. The will happen shortly – perhaps in the next two weeks send out a survey to residents to gain a feeling of the issues you have in your streets.

This will include a public meeting perhaps in mid march at a yet to be determined venue where we will reinforce the communities thoughts.

The resulting proposals will be put before you again before being put to Council for a decision. If the process moves smoothly I expect Council may see it at its May meeting.

Jennie and I are putting a budget submission forward to implement at least the highest priorities in the next financial year.
