We would like to thank the many loyal Rye residents who have supported our stand against the expansion of the Rye boat ramp to 4 lanes. Unfortunately the State Government did not give their approval for the ill-gotten Grant money to be used for a modified plan. Consequently the original Plan was brought back to Council in July. In a packed meeting the Council voted 7/3 to adopt the plan to rebuild the boat ramp, including a 4th ramp and jetty. This was despite the 175 written objections, and the voices of 1300 people who signed a  Change.org petition against the expansion. This was three times the number of people that signed the "for expansion" petition.
