Don't MAX the Malls 2
22 August 2013. No station is proposed in the Mall which means through traffic at speed and no benefit to retailers, shoppers or pedestrians who will have to be on full alert at all times for passing trams.

Don't MAX the Malls 8
22 August 2013. Keep the Mall for pedestrian use only. In busy times, it is already packed with people and already has insufficient seating at lunch time. The Mall needs more trees and seats, not passing Trams...

Fragile Power Pole

The notice on the pole says it has been treated for termites, but I never feel safe walking past the crumbling wood. Sent this photo to the power company, and they quickly replaced the pole and cross-beams.

A Majestic Landmark
5 February 2013.
This Norfolk Pine stood proud and tall in the next street. It served as a roost and nesting place for local birds. I have watched the Peregrine Falcon feeding chicks in a nest at the very top. New owners of the property had the tree removed today -- another landmark gone forever!
