Drop The Bypass Meeting!

Tuesday, 31 July

7pm at Thistle Hall (cnr Arthur and Upper Cuba Streets)

This is an open invitation to the first of two public meetings on the proposed inner city by-pass. You probably know by now that the project received $1.6 million in design funding last month.

What many people do not know is that this is not a final go-ahead - the by-pass can still be stopped, especially if an anti-bypass/pro-Te Aro Council is elected in October.

To get this message across Campaign for a Better City is holding a meeting tonight. We are having a range of choice people to do short talks about the campaign and our city and we are devoting a good proportion of the meeting to group work and discussion on various aspects of the campaign, from lobbying to direct action.

It is essential that we get heaps of people at this meeting so tell everyone you know to come along. We can all save Te Aro and ensure its future as a sustainable community by active participation in the campaign.
