The Maroondah Journal has reported on the success of Maroondah’s inaugural mobility expo, which attracted well over 300 attendees, and exceeded all expectations.
Maroondah councillor Alex Makin said mobility and accessibility were huge issues facing local government.
“It was encouraging people were now feeling empowered to speak out and better services. Many people got so much out of these sessions. It is important they can participate in society with confidence.”
Maroondah’s Mobility Expo and the Scoot Wheel ‘N’ Move working group have provided a model for strengthening community engagement and encouraging to speak out of issues of concern.
Strengthening community engagement and participation in council decisions will result in better outcomes that reflect genuine community needs.
