Low Carbon Kapiti Meeting
This would include but not be limited to cycle paths, electric vehicle and e-bike charging, solar power and tree planting, local food and clean waterways - things that would make the Kapiti Coast an even better place to live, make us happier and more prosperous and help the climate too.
This group would lobby local politicians and give input to decisions, such as the upcoming Long Term Plan. We'd praise good decisions and call out bad ones. We'd focus on achievable short and medium term actions that they can take. We'd also promote inspiring visions of the future to explain to everyone what we're all about.
I have been working with Lynn Sleath and John Baldwin of Cycle Action Kapiti, and we have arranged a petition and a bike ride in support of the PP2O shared path. The bike ride is this Saturday afternoon, 18 March. Details of both below. I will use this event to promote Low Carbon Kapiti and take details of people who are interested. If you can make this event too/instead, that's great. I'll be riding, leaving my place at 12:30pm.
Riders - meet at the entrance to the new pathway beside the expressway on Te Moana Road Waikanae at 1.00 pm on Saturday 18 March. From there we will take a leisurely 6 km ride north up the pathway to Peka Peka to meet and discuss the campaign. If you can't make the bike ride, then please join the group outside Harrisons Garden Centre at 2.00 pm.
