For those interested there is an opportunity to share your views with Mr Loopers via his blog page. It seems he is more concerned about parking bays than anything else.
Last year I participated in four workshops on the development of Kings Square, one a so called Citizen Jury. We talked about street lay-out, parking, shared streets, etc. and it resulted in recommendations to Fremantle council by CODA architects. Imagine my surprise today to see a large sign in William Street inviting comments to a contra-flow bicycle lane along the Town Hall. Unless I have lost all my marbles and my memory is gone, I have no recollection of a contra-flow bicycle lane ever been talked about or suggested at any of the workshops and it is also not in the CODA recommendations, so why is the City now proposing something that was never part of the community consultation process?
What a bicycle lane would do is take away many parking bays at the Town Hall and I fear this could become an argument for allowing parking and traffic in Newman Court once the Kings Square development goes ahead.
I am not sure if I should laugh or cry about what goes on in at the City of Fremantle sometimes.
