Ringwood Chamber of Commerce: Around Our Town

By May 23, 2006No Comments

The Ringwood Chamber of Commerce’s Around Our Town event provides an opportunity for the business community to hear about the latest developments within the fields of business and Maroondah.

Tonight’s event focused on the Ringwood Transit City and the potential that Ringwood has to offer for both the business community and for residents. Ringwood is experiencing strong residential and commercial growth and this coupled with the much needed redevelopment of Ringwood Station and other public transport improvements has the potential to transform Ringwood into a truly vibrant and suburb.

The Ringwood Chamber of Commerce provides invaluable support to the business community through facilitating these information sessions.

Ultimately the redevelopment of Ringwood Station is the lynchpin that will strengthen the revitalisation of Ringwood. The upcoming State Budget to be presented on Tuesday the 30th of May must include funding for Ringwood Station for the redevelopment to occur by 2008.

The Ringwood and broader Maroondah community have been waiting far too long for the redevelopment of Ringwood Station, it is time for the State Government to act and provide the necessary funding for the redevelopment to occur.
