Maroondah City Council is inviting the community to have your say about environmental issues at an Environment Forum to be held on the evening of Monday 7 May at the Karralyka Centre.

Councillor Alex Makin said the forum will allow Maroondah residents the opportunity to discuss what is important to them with respect to the environment.

“The forum will look at topics such as water conservation and quality, biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions, transport, litter and waste,” said Cr Makin.

“Council is seeking feedback from the community on environmental and sustainability priorities. This forum will allow council to respond to these priorities and assist the community to become more sustainable on an individual basis,” said Cr Makin.

“The information gained from the community will be used in the future direction of Council policy. This is your opportunity to voice issues relating to our urban sustainability that are important to you,” said Cr Makin.

The Environment Forum will take place at the Karralyka Centre, Mines Rd, Ringwood East (Mel Map 50 A6) on Monday 7 May from 7pm to 9.30pm.
