2019, the last of the decade, and a year that has seen some epic highs and lows.
But it is also a year that has seen the first steps in some critical changes needed to adjust to a challenging future.
Climate change, sustainable growth, mental health and equitable livability are just of the few of the massive issues that dominated discussion during the year. It is also good to see the action being done at a local level.
If the 2020's is to be a decade to turn years of procrastination and obfuscation around, it will start where it can most affect you but have the most effect; locally.
Like all the key stories shaping this city, we will be there to cover it like no one else.
Happy New Year.
