Palmerston North City Council is hosting the session, along with support from Horizons Regional Council.

“We want life to be safe, easy and convenient for pedestrians, cyclists and those who use public transport in Palmerston North,” says Matthew Kilpatrick, PNCC Transport Planner.

“The drop-in session is for people interested in the future direction Palmerston North can take for those using active and public transport. This is an opportunity for people learn about some of our plans and future projects, and ask us questions about our existing and draft proposals for the on-road and off-road cycle network.”

City Council staff and some Councillors will attend to talk about handouts, maps, slides and other materials that will be available during the session.

Horizons Regional Council staff will be on hand to provide information on local public transport.
