The community re-engagement process set up as part of the refreshed Wellington urban cycleways programme now has a new name, logo and website.
Love the Bay is a collaborative project to co-design the future of Island Bay. You can visit the new website here: www.lovethebay.nz. Here's more about the project from the Love the Bay team:
"We've launched a website at lovethebay.nz, where you can stay updated on the project, give feedback, and see upcoming events, like a Meet & Greet with City Planner David Chick on 8 September. Please check it out and share it with your friends and neighbours!
What would make Island Bay even better?
Join the conversation and co-design a plan for the future of our community. We will be hosting a series of workshops to develop a plan for Island Bay. Each workshop will be held twice, so you only need to attend one of each session.
All workshops will be held at Island Bay Baptist Church, 284 The Parade.
