Throughout March everyone living or working near Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games' venues will have the chance to find out more about the impact on their neighbourhood as the city prepares to host the largest ever sporting event in Scotland.
A series of ten local events will target residents and businesses living on the doorstep of a Games' venue or Live Zone, offering useful information on the changes they can expect to see in the lead up to and during Games time, how to prepare for potential alterations to daily routines and how to ensure they can make the most of the opportunity to get involved.Organised by Glasgow City Council, Glasgow 2014 and Police Scotland, at each meeting people will have the chance to meet the individuals bringing world class sport to their doorstep, find out more about the cultural events and legacy projects across the city and speak to those who will be keeping the city open for business this summer. All events run from 5.30pm - 7.30pm, with a short presentation at 6pm, followed by a question and answer session. To help us manage numbers we're asking people to pre-register for the session they'd like to attend.
At the moment we are finalising the details of our local traffic management plans that will protect residential parking and ensure the smooth running of the Games, but these sessions will give people the opportunity to ask initial questions. A further round of information sessions will be held in May when more specific detail around traffic, travel and parking is available.
The Commonwealth Games will touch the lives of everyone in the city, in some way shape or form. The event will also change how the city functions and operates for its duration. Get Ready Glasgow is the campaign to help people across Glasgow plan for the Games.
From now until after the Games there is only one place to go for the most up to date information about what's happening in Glasgow and that's www.getreadyglasgow.comThe website will have the most up to date information so that people can see what's happening at a local level and can sign up for regular email updates. Currently the website has some useful travel advice for business tools to help businesses get ready for the Games.
