Think­ing caps on for greener fu­ture

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Near You -

NED­LANDS’ big thinkers were awarded cash prizes in the City of Ned­lands My Great Idea com­pe­ti­tion last month.

Sus­tain­able Ned­lands Com­mit­tee chair­man Nigel Share said the win­ning en­tries demon­strated ex­cel­lence in in­no­va­tion, cre­ativ­ity and prac­ti­cal so­lu­tions to en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns.

Mayor Max Hip­kins pre­sented cer­tifi­cates and $700 prizes to Joyce­lyn Ma, Daniel Ro­jas and Ro­cio Ucul­mana for their study on public trans­port, walk­ing and cy­cling and Carolyn Groves for her sus­tain­able liv­ing sub­mis­sion, My Cal­i­for­nian Bun­ga­low.

Six en­tries won com­men­da­tions and re­ceived a cer­tifi­cate and $100.

“I am pleased to see the com­pe­ti­tion has en­cour­aged res­i­dents to think about in­no­va­tive and pro­gres­sive ideas for the City’s fu­ture, in­clud­ing new tech­nol­ogy, and that has been re­flected in the re­sponses the com­mit­tee has re­ceived,” chief ex­ec­u­tive Greg Trevaskis said.

The Sus­tain­able Ned­lands Com­mit­tee will in­ves­ti­gate im­ple­ment­ing many of the win­ning ideas.

All en­tries can be viewed at the City’s ad­min­is­tra­tion build­ing.
