So I rushed to the Blacktown Max Webber Library and was told by the kind customer service officers that there is no exhibition and no one knows where they are - after she checked with the Library Management - then she rang to speak to Customer Service Officer from The Mount Druitt Hub Library. Was advised they don't know of any documents that they had received. I wasn't upset. I was confused that an important document has been delayed and not properly placed in the libraries for exhibition by the launch of the exhibition on the 25th September 2013.
I have been speaking to people at work and on trains and buses promoting this important plan for future of Transport and public transport. I do understand that Council may be limited in how they can get the word across, I thought they would be going out to Libraries having community meetings, publicizing the importance of people can have their say. But it it just a few copies left on the table of a library and no poster, no announcements - that is no advocating for this just leave it that way.
Now I believe that copies have been received at all libraries with Blacktown City Council as follows:
