Andrew Crockett made some good points in last week’s Echo regarding the use of a Melbourne based consultancy firm for eliciting community information concerning the future directions of the development of Mullumbimby.
The fellow I talked to had no knowledge of the local area, its history nor the whereabouts of various streets and important buildings.
The point I was trying to make was that it would be an error of judgement if the give-way signs on Stuart and Dalley Streets intersecting with Tincogan Street were changed as these signs create a calming effect on through traffic using Tincogan Street as a town bypass.
I speak as a resident of Stuart Street and as a pedestrian and cyclist and do not wish to run the gauntlet of bypass traffic on my bike for a simple emergency croissant dash to the bakery.
