Probus Club of Ringwood – outlining a vision as Mayor

By December 21, 2009December 31st, 2009No Comments

The Probus Club of Ringwood meets on a monthly basis and provides regular speakers and outings for Maroondah’s seniors.

This morning I was invited to speak to the Probus Club of Ringwood to discuss my vision for the oncoming year and my term as Mayor. As part of this discussion I spoke about the need for the redevelopment of Ringwood Station, an issue shared by the attendees, many of whom avoid the station due to the steepness of the ramps.

I also discussed the shortage of accommodation for community organisations and the need for council to identify these shortfalls and a plan for action.

The redevelopment of Eastland provides an opportunity to incorporate community space within the centre of Ringwood and likewise the proposed redevelopment of North Ringwood Community House can deliver a similar opportunity.

As a council we must ensure that people within our municipality are able to partake in community organisations and causes and this will be one of my priorities during the oncoming year.
