VACC Vancouver Committee Monthly Meeting - Wednesday, August 27
The last meeting was 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the barbecue shed beside the Cat's Meow on Granville Island in Vancouver.
The Vancouver Committee of the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition focuses on cycling issues and opportunities within the City of Vancouver. We are an advocacy group working towards making Vancouver a better cycling place for all types and skill levels of cyclists. Our process is to work through the City infrastructure and make representations on cycling issues to the Council, staff, and the City of Vancouver Bicycle Advisory Committee.
All, both VACC members and non-members, are welcome to attend, suggest topics to be discussed, participate in the committee discussions, and arrive at decisions and courses of actions. Both members and non-members can undertake the lead role in initiatives that we undertake.
