Meals On Wheels Day and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers that deliver meals to the clients that receive the service in the City of Canada Bay. Each year more than 100 volunteers deliver more than 14,000 meals to local clients. The dedication, commitment and hard work of our volunteers is appreciated by Council and the wider community, so National Meals on Wheels Day is a great opportunity to show our appreciation. Our volunteers come from all walks of life with some volunteers from culturally diverse backgrounds and age is certainly no barrier. Our youngest volunteers are school children and our oldest is 93. National Meals on Wheels Day is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness of the service and to show our appreciation to each of the volunteers that take time out of their busy schedules to help others in the community. Environment Council's environmental newsletter News On A Better Environment will now be featured quarterly in the Bayside Brief. Here you will find information about what is happening in our local area. We have a range of environmental initiatives in place for 2005 which include the Travel Access Guide, Residential Energy Audit & Retrofit Program, CCP Re-inventory & CCP LAP update, Water Campaign (M1/M2), Environmental Data Management Program, Local Agenda 21 Local Action Plan, Solar BBQ Day, Community Sustainable Living Workshops, Green Business Re-enforcement program, Water Campaign (M3), School Environmental Education Program, Environmental Citizen Awards and Greenfleet Membership.

Bay Rider
Pilot Bus Shuttle Service for Canada Bay
In response to resident claims regarding the lack of transport available across the local government area Council in partnership with Drummoyne Community Centre will be launching a pilot bus shuttle service called the Bay Rider. The service is aimed primarily at residents who due to a lack of transport have difficulty accessing facilities or services in the area. The Bay Rider, will run between Drummoyne and Concord and is proposed to have drop off points at various community sites including Five Dock Library and Concord Hospital. There will be an option for some residents, where required, to be picked up from home. The service will commence in October and is anticipated to operate every Thursday with between 3 to 4 trips across the City. A donation only will be requested for using this service. Designated pickup points have yet to be determined and we are seeking information and advice from the public in regard to this. The success of this pilot project will depend on the service being flexible to meet community needs. For more information and comment please call Ros or Amanda at the Drummoyne Community Centre on 9719 8102. The Bay Rider is being funded by the Sustainable City Levy and will be launched on Tuesday, 27 September after the Drummoyne Community Centre's Annual General Meeting which starts at 11am.

Environment
Queen Elizabeth Park Bush Regeneration
By Pam Regan Bush Regeneration Volunteer & Local Agenda 21 Committee Member Big changes in Queen Elizabeth Park will soon be obvious as Canada Bay Council, with a grant from the Federal Government Environment Fund, make a revived and ecologically sustainable area for residents to enjoy.

Our Environment - It’s a Living Thing Keen to Be Green
'Sustainable Living' is a project implemented by Councils in the Lower Parramatta River Catchment including Canada Bay, Ryde, Strathfield, Ashfield, Burwood, Hunters Hill and Leichhardt following the successful application for funding from the Department of Environment and Conservation, under the ‘Our Environment - It's A Living Thing’ (OEILT) program. Based on the pilot of a community information day called Keen to be Green, the objective of the 'Sustainable Living' activities was to educate residents on behaviours and lifestyles that impact negatively on the environment. The program involved a community information stand about 'Sustainable Living' in the household and a number of "Sustainable Living' community workshops. The information stand was displayed at community festivals and focused on education to support the community in a continual path towards a sustainable lifestyle. The stand displayed examples of non-toxic cleaning products as well as simple energy and water saving devices. Free workshops with giveaways were conducted and were broadly based on the theme of 'Sustainable Living', covering topics such as chemical Helen Scott and Vicki Goldsmith at the Keen to be Green Event free cleaning, water, energy and waste. Each workshop participant took home giveaways and was provided with an information booklet with tips that were covered in the workshop. The program proved to be successful across all Council areas, with positive feedback provided by workshop attendees and community members that visited the stalls. The City of Canada Bay Council will continue to implement programs that encourage sustainability throughout the area.

This project will ensure the recovery of the remnant endangered community of Sydney Turpentine-Ironbark forest. The project commenced over ten years ago when many of the trees were pronounced "stressed" and were consequently fenced in order to protect and improve the surrounding soil. These plots worked extremely effectively and it was decided to enlarge these areas with suitable understory plantings and weed eradication. Concord Bushcare Group is currently working on the project and meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday at noon in Winter, and at 9am during daylight savings.

Sean Callinan

Sean Callinan Sean has lived in the Inner West since moving from the country as a student. Sean has lived in Five Dock with his family for the last seven years. He works as a freelance designer and teaches animation and screen media at UTS. Sean is also studying at UTS for a Masters of Design and this has reinforced his awareness of ethical and sustainability issues in the community. Sean has found involvement with Local Agenda 21 to be a very useful experience allowing the members to contribute significantly to Council's policy making, but also to learn a great deal more about the practical realities of sustainable development at a municipal level.

Pauline Tyrrell

Pauline Tyrrell For 16 years, Pauline has lived in Chiswick, where she is a member of the Chiswick Bushcare group. Pauline was a Councillor at the City of Canada Bay Council from 2000 to 2004 which included the role of Deputy Mayor from 2002 - 2004. During this time, she worked hard to adopt the Local Agenda 21 program and many other environmental initiatives. Pauline has been active in many local environmental and social support committees that were concerned with the cleaning of Breakfast Point & the Rhodes Peninsula, waste management, Sydney Harbour catchment, disability access, libraries, shopping precincts & city planning to name just a few. As well as being an active member of the Local Agenda 21 Steering Committee, Pauline is currently involved with a group lobbying for better public transport and is also a member of the Drummoyne Community Centre.

By Sean Callinan LA21 Committee Member While national governments argue over the extent of climate change and whether to sign international treaties, cities worldwide are seizing the initiative in sustainability. In a remarkable development 168 US Mayors committed themselves in June of this year, to meeting or exceeding the Kyoto targets for greenhouse emission reductions. The movement has been spearheaded by Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels whose administration have put in place a set of sustainability principles for the city including restoring forest, developing alternative energy sources, public education programs, better public transport and incentives to encourage carpooling. Between 1990 and 2000 Seattle reduced its greenhouse emissions by 60% and boasts the only zero net emission power utility in the US. Under the Mayors' initiative, 17 major US cities have reduced their emissions to pre 1990 levels and Chicago has set up a computerised marketplace for the trading of emission credits that currently boasts over 100 members. Around the world many other cities are aggressively pushing ahead with innovative sustainability programs. Reykjavik in Iceland currently gets over 70% of its energy from renewable resources and is aiming to move to a fully hydrogen based economy by 2050. Vancouver has an even higher level of sustainable energy at 90%, mainly hydo-electric. The city has put in place a 100 year plan to develop solar, wind, wave and tidal power. A number of European cities, including Helsinki in Finland, have provided free bicycles for public use, where the bike is collected from a stand on payment of a deposit which is returned when the bike is brought back. In other cities Councils and even private businesses are providing bicycles for their employees.

Perhaps one of the most remarkable cases is Curitiba in Parana State, Brazil. This city where the per capita average income is only a little over A$3200 a year, has achieved amazing things due to the actions of its visionary Mayor, former architect Jaime Lerner. In recent times the city has seen a 30% reduction in private car use, along with 90 new parks and 150km of bike paths and the planting of 60,000 new trees a year. Education programs via schools have led to very high rates of recycling and in poor areas where trucks cannot gain access a 'green exchange' program provides food parcels to residents in return for bags of garbage. This has not only made the city one of Brazil's cleanest, but also saved substantial costs in city services. Curitiba boasts a highly efficient public transport system including extensive bus only expressways, and around 70% of residents use the system. Incentives have also been created to encourage industry and business to move to the suburbs, hence decentralising the city. In place of the usual urban hustle, the city centre features extensive plazas with a vibrant street culture: kid's activities, open-air art classes and cultural amenities make the city one of the most pleasant in the world to live in. Our own area has made substantial strides in putting sustainability matters at the heart of city life. Through improved waste systems, new building standards, greenhouse reduction and bushcare programs, for example, Canada Bay is pushing forward with change. Nevertheless there is no doubt that we can learn a great deal from these kinds of examples and, most importantly, that as a Council, and as private residents, being a relatively small local area is no barrier to making an important contribution to sustainability.

Canada Bay Council receives Awards at Sustainability Recognition Ceremony
The City of Canada Bay Council was recently presented with two awards at the New South Wales Sustainability Forum, held by the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) and the Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO). Deputy Mayor Neil Kenzler accepted the awards for Council's efforts in abating greenhouse gas emissions and water quality and quantity control. Council has been working toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions in both the corporate and community sectors since 1999 and has abated well over 10,000 tonnes by being a participant in the Cities for Climate Protection program (CCP). Council has continued its commitment to this program by being one of the first Councils to join the CCP Plus Program a program offered to Councils who have excelled in the CCP Program. The second award was for Council's involvement in the Water Campaign, by completing a comprehensive corporate water consumption analysis and a water quality analysis for both corporate and community sectors. The information will be used to set water quality and quantity goals and developing a local action plan. Once developed, projects from this action plan will be implemented throughout the local area to reduce water usage and to improve water quality.

Ways That You Can Save Water and Money In Your Home

Kokoda Kaffee at the Kokoda Track Memorial Walkway in Rhodes

• Install AAA-rated showerhead - this will save you approximately $50 on your water and electricity bills each year! • Attach a kitchen and bathroom tap aerator. Easy to attach and cheap to purchase. • Install AAA-rated dual flush toilet OR insert a cistern converter. A cistern converter costs around $10 and saves 40, 000 litres of water and $40 of your water bill per year! • When shaving and brushing teeth - don't leave the tap running. • Adjust your washing machine to suit your load or only wash when you have a complete load. • When replacing your washing machine - purchase AAAA-rated washing machine. • Don't leave the tap running when washing dishes, fruit and vegetables. • When purchasing dishwashers - AAA-rated dishwasher uses 64% less water than traditional dishwashers. • Wash your car with a bucket, not a hose. • Use a broom to clean outdoor areas - not a hose. • Avoid cutting your lawn to short and try using the cuttings as mulch to retain moisture - using mulch reduces evaporation by up to 70%. • Select local native plants and lawns that require less water - water early in the morning and late afternoon to reduce evaporation. • Install a water tank.

Residential Energy Audit & Retrofit Program
The City of Canada Bay Council received funding from the Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) in conjunction with the International Council of local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), to undertake a residential energy audit & retrofit program throughout the City of Canada Bay. The funding was approved late last year with the program running through until May this year. Residents that were a part of the program have received over $250 worth of environmental products including 6 energy efficient globes, water & energy efficient showerhead, kitchen tap aerator & bathroom aerator, cistern converter, draft excluder and in some cases a compost bin - all implemented to reduce water and electricity usage and reduce waste. Participating residents had their household's energy and water bills from the past 12 months checked by an environmental specialist. Each household also received a comprehensive list of recommendations that would ultimately enhance the household's sustainability and hence save money on electricity and water bills. The program proved to be successful with over 40 tonnes of greenhouse gas to be abated each year that will contribute toward Council's goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by the year 2010 (based on 1990 levels).

Sections of the channel will remain concrete lined, but where possible the channel will be converted in an attempt to recover some of the natural ecological features and functions of the creek which existed before the area was developed. The Powells Creek Channel Project Steering Committee has recently been

The Powells Creek Stormwater channel is located along the boundary of the City of Canada Bay Council. This channel forms a part of an open waterway which collects and directs stormwater into Homebush Bay. At present the channel is concrete lined and is in a deteriorated state causing further erosion of the embankments behind the channel wall. In conjunction with Sydney Water, Sydney Olympic Park Authority and Strathfield Council, Canada Bay Council is currently looking at the option of restoring the channel to resemble and function similar to its natu-

formed and the process has begun to determine when and how the channel will be restored. The main identified constraints for the naturalisation project are: • The narrow corridor in which the channel sits. The channel is bounded by residential and industrial properties and therefore the width of the channel is restricted by these properties in addition to the popular open space and recreational areas; • Ensuring there is no adverse effect on the existing adjacent Mason Park wetlands. The wetland is a valuable environmental feature in the area, therefore the naturalisation process of the channel will be developed in such a way to ensure no adverse affect on the wetlands ; and • Maintaining the open space area including the existing cycle way and pedestrian facilities - the current cycle way which runs beside the channel for a section is of high recreational value to those living and visiting the area. The next stage of the project is to prepare concept designs, and prepare background studies. The intended outcome of this project is the creation of an accessible waterway, enhancement of visual amenity and improvement of environmental values and water quality leaving the catchment.

The Palace Hotel
Did you know…
• Prior to European settlement the area
now known as the City of Canada Bay was occupied by the Wann-gal clan. The Wann-gal today are remembered by the Wangal Bushland Reserve (Mortlake) • At 51.7ha, AGL's former gasworks site at Mortlake is the largest gasworks ever remediated in the southern hemisphere. • When the First Fleet arrived in Sydney in 1788, Captain John Hunter set about mapping the harbour. His records show that early on the fifth day he sailed west up what is now the Parramatta River. After about 10 kilometres he set ashore to make tea and have refreshments. He made his first charting at this spot and so named it - Breakfast Point eastern bay of the Mortlake peninsular.
