Environmental Petition

No taxpayer funding for Remodel

360 Signatures Obtained, This Campaign Was Victorious!
Declared Victory: November 16, 2015

Target: 500


There were two rain shelters in front of 991 King’s Road in March 2014. Nevertheless, due to the massive size of the bases of the rain shelters and also the road was deemed too narrow for its purpose, the district councilor therefore suggested to relocate the shelters to Hoi Tai Street, where vehicular traffic was less busy.

In February 2015, the district councilor suggested to enhance the rain shelters by adding seats under the shelters. In fact, the citizens have already been skeptical about the actual function of the rain shelters for a long period of time already. Even though the rain shelters have been ‘enhanced’’ by adding seats, the number of citizens who could be benefited by it would only be limited. The rain shelters can actually be described as ‘dysfunctional’.

Please sign and request the Home Affairs Department to stop the remodeling action and to consult the citizens about how to deal with the removed rain shelters immediately.
