Use collective action to listen to and address the needs of minority and low-income communities.

The City needs to talk to cultural groups together and not segment them all the time. Bring back Mayor's Council so all underrepresented communities can sit with the Mayor together and communicate together instead of separately in City interactions.

Vehicle Parking

Car counts per 1,000 residents are unlikely to change for the next 40 years (Victoria Transport Policy Institute, August 2014). What will change is the engine and fuel running them.
