Michael McKenna, Skerries Cycling Initiative, looks back on the year which this committee of Skerries Community Association had in 2014:
We ended the year with our second Newsletter of 2014 and an online survey about walking and cycling in Skerries. The survey responses included many useful insights and suggestions and we sincerely thank all who took the trouble to complete it. The results will be published early in 2015. The Newsletter also generated over 20 new subscribers as well as the very welcome prospect of new people joining our committee in the New Year.
We got some encouraging news that funding for a cycle track from Barnageera to Balbriggan and for the Broadmeadow Estuary crossing is to be provided from 2015 on.
Fingal County Council has asked for views by 22 January on reduced speed limits in housing estates and for submissions on the redevelopment of Skerries Town Parks by 27 January. Both of these items are of huge importance to improved walking and cycling in Skerries.
We would like to thank you for your support during 2014 and will continue to work to make Skerries an even better place to grow up and grow old in over the coming years.
