We need actually to follow the goals we set in our climate action and active transportation plans when development decisions are made. We need more redundancy in alternative transportation options. We need to stop catering to the car driving population over all other.users- not just in plans but in actions. We need our school grounds open to residents' use after school hours and on weekends.
