This morning I was invited by the Salvation Army Companion Club to speak about my experiences as a Councillor on Maroondah City Council and to discuss the role of Council within the community.
The discussion focused on the plans for Ringwood, the need for public transport improvements and the urgent need to upgrade Ringwood Station. Issues relating to footpaths were also extensively discussed and I will be able to use this input will help shape Maroondah’s pedestrian strategy. The strategy, which is currently in draft status, will provide a framework in regard to footpath maintenance and construction and will help to define Maroondah’s responsibilities in regard to our footpath network.
The Salvation Army Companion Club is a social club for men and women over 50 years old and includes a range of activities and speakers to ensure lively discussion. I would like to thank the members for their hospitality for a very lively discussion around life within Maroondah.
