Club Notes

1. Presentation on the Wetland Project to City Council, 6:00 pm, Monday, 25 May

The Club will be giving an update on progress to date, and will report on future plans. Supporters of the project are encouraged to attend. Council Meetings start at 6:00 pm in City Hall Council Chambers on the second floor.

2. City Signage Project

Some good ideas have been received for the 30 signs to be created around a 30-kilometre city walking route, but many more would be welcome. In particular, ideas are needed for signs relevant to particular locations. A reminder of details, with a map of the route, can be found here.
