Maroondah Journal: Footpath strategy on display

By April 24, 2007No Comments

Maroondah’s pedestrian strategy has reached draft status and is currently available for public comment. This provides the opportunity for the to comment on the strategy and the need for footpaths and the needs of pedestrians within Maroondah.

The Maroondah Journal has reported on the draft strategy and the strong level of community support for footpath improvements in Maroondah.

Cr Alex Makin said the “strategy allows us [Maroondah] to form a funding mechanism and plug some of the gaps.”

All trips involve a form of walking and a well-developed footpath network is required to help ensure maximum mobility for Maroondah’s residents.

“I urge the community to get behind the strategy. It’s imperative that feedback is received. We need to identify the areas that are of grave concern to the community.”

The Maroondah Pedestrian Strategy is available for comment from the Maroondah City Council website at
