After many months of nominations, deliberations and craziness, there is a date for the meeting of Toronto's Cycling Advisory Comittee. The date remains tentative; If council does not approve the committee next week the date could change.
Here is the info:
The first meeting of the Toronto Cycling Advisory Committee is scheduled for Monday, October 15, 2007, 7:00 p.m., Committee Room 1, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West.
cherrio for now
I am cac cac over this... though one has to wonder why they are even bothering.
I guess I didn't get 'chosen'.. .nice that they bothered to call and let all of us who made the effort to apply know that we didn't make the cac cut!
With Transportation Services keenly focussed on eliminating the need for cycling infrastructure (http://allderdice.ca/?p=227) it would appear Mr Heaps has realised in order to keep his pledge to install 35 km of bike lanes in this calendar year he will indeed have to paint them himself .. unless he can hastily assemble a Cycling Advisory Committee to do it for him. Now we will have to wait to see if experienced lane painters as O.U.R.S were recruited who will put bikelanes on main streets where they are needed or rank amateurs who will meekly follow the CAA directive to restrict cyclists to sidestreets going nowhere have been awarded this plum posting.
Oh I see - DUH - council has to rubber stamp us first. right. duh.
things take time but it's a record year of delay/no committee, like record drought, some heat etc.
