Maidstone Street Public Meeting

By June 15, 2007One Comment

This morning, along with Heidi Victoria, the Member for Bayswater, I spoke to residents at Maidstone Street Park in Ringwood to discuss the current council proposal and the best way to stop the sale from proceeding.

Despite the extremely cold conditions and a temperature of less than eight degrees, approximately 60 residents attended this meeting to demonstrate firsthand the importance of this unique community park. While Proclamation Park may be located in close proximity, it does not provide the same community atmosphere of the park located at Maidstone Street.

I would like to thank the many residents who attended the meeting and asked questions about the Council process. I will be lodging a petition, signed by residents who are wishing to see the park retained, at Monday’s Council meeting.

I have publicly stated my support for the sale to not proceed and I will be voting against the proposed sale. I encourage all residents who wish to see the park retained to issue an objection to council by the 6th of July. Objections need to include a name and address and can be emailed directly to me at alex.makin@maroondah.vic.gov.au or via post to Council at PO Box 136, Ringwood 3134.
