Media Release: Look out for your Community Guide

By June 16, 2010June 23rd, 2010No Comments

The 2010/2011 Maroondah Community Guide has been delivered to residents in Maroondah over the past week.

Maroondah’s Mayor, Councillor Alex Makin, encouraged community members to make use of this excellent resource.

“The Maroondah City Council Community Guide is updated each year and contains an enormous amount of useful contact information on Council and community services,” Cr Makin said.

The first part of the guide details the many services and facilities provided by Council, as well as including information about elected representatives.

The second half of the guide has a comprehensive list of community organisations and services within Maroondah, including hobby groups, sporting clubs, disability services and local schools.

“You’ll find the Community Guide is well worth a look, with plenty of handy information. Keep it close to hand as an easy reference to local services, community facilities and agencies for the entire year,” Cr Makin said.

Residents who are new to Maroondah will receive the Community Guide as part of Council’s New Residents’ welcome kits.

Copies of the Maroondah Community Guide are also available from Council’s service centres at Braeside Avenue, Ringwood; Eastland Shopping Centre; and Civic Square, Croydon.

The Community Guide is also available online at where you can find the most up-to-date community listings and information.

“While the Community Guide is printed annually, the online community listing can be updated by organisations at any time throughout the year. Help us keep the information current by updating your organisation’s details online,” Cr Makin said.

Information can be updated online at or by phoning 1300 88 22 33.
