The community has overwhelmingly supported Maroondah City Council’s campaign calling for the upgrade of Ringwood Station, with several residents devoting their time to secure signatures for Council’s petition.
The petition was circulated through community groups and several residents have encouraged neighbours and family to sign the petition. In addition, residents Dawn Oliffe and Margaret Stevens both volunteered their time to collect signatures at Ringwood Station and Eastland.
Margaret secured a stall at Eastland, where she spent the week encouraging community members to support the petition. During this time several hundred signatures were collected with a strong interest in the petition and I would like to thank Margaret, Dawn and the many members of our community that are supporting the petition and Council’s advocacy campaign.
This afternoon I accepted Margaret’s completed petitions on behalf of Maroondah City Council and thanked her for her commitment and time in supporting this campaign. Margaret is a well regarded accessibility advocate, who has first-hand experience with the access difficulties at Ringwood Station.
