Scooters!

This week, the City saw the launch of e-scooter rental services after Council earlier approved an e-scooter pilot period and allowed the devices on City roads. Based on the social media interactions I've had, I thought it might be useful to provide a little more information about the scooters and how to use them. You're likely seeing them parked around the City and parts of our ward, or have seen people riding them around.

All-or-nothing intensification: the Highcroft case

At the end of May, City Council approved a big new expansion of the area in which the construction of new subdivisions can be built. It was a contentious debate. At the heart of it was the question of intensification: how much is too much? Are residents prepared to make compromises? Can even the new requirement that intensification account for half of growth between now and 2046 be achieved?
