New Westminister Environmental Partners AGM - FREE Admission

On Tuesday night, November 9, 2010, the New Westminster Environmental Partners will hold a forum on The Future of Sustainable Transportation at their annual AGM. This event is free and open to the public. All details of this event are listed above in the poster.

I am on the speaker's list as you will see below. I have been asked to share information on the future of sustainable transportation in the south Fraser region. I am very much looking forward to this evening, as my fellow speakers are quality people.

The Speakers List Includes:

Jerry Dobrovolny
is the Director of Transportation for the City of Vancouver and a former New Westminster City Councillor. He will discuss how the Olympics and Separated Bike Lanes are helping to Make Vancouver the Greenest City in the World by 2020. The presentation will include newly released data showing the shift in travel modes that occurred during games time, and discuss how cities can excel in a paradigm of peak oil and GHG reduction.

Joe Zaccaria is a sustainable transportation advocate from South Fraser OnTrax. Joe will present some quick facts from our neighbours in the south-of-Fraser region, including options to decrease motordom and make our communities walkable again. What is driving transportation needs in the south of Fraser? What is being planned and what is being hoped for? What does these mean for the whole region?

Jonathan Cote is a New Westminster City Councillor. He will talk about how urban design and form affect sustainable transportation. He will also talk about road pricing and other issues in the local (New Westminster) and regional (Metro Vancouver) context.

You can check out the NWEP website here for more details and complete information on the group. Memberships will be available for $5.00 at the meeting if you wish to donate and vote at this AGM. Come out and support this worthy community group that is making a difference!
