We only have a couple of months make sure Level Crossing Removal Project and Government hear what the Coburg community wants from the level crossing removals. A Town Hall meeting has been organised for Sunday July 28 between 2pm and 4pm at the Coburg Concert Hall in the Coburg Civic centre, 90 Bell Street, Coburg. Note: entrance is from Urquhart street.
Register for the meeting on Eventbrite. The Concert Hall has a capacity of 120 people, so early registration will guarantee a place.
This will be a big one. With construction due to start before the end of 2019 and consultation being a one way street and our community is not feeling heard.
We think we only have a couple of months to impress on the decision makers what we want so to demonstrate our dedication to getting great outcomes for our community. So we are inviting our whole community plus our local politicians to ask them how they plan to ensure the people of Moreland are not left short by the State Government by cutting corners and ignoring the community in building this legacy project without properly considering what we want.
At the meeting we will be presenting the community drafted vision document drawn from a meeting of over 80 people, supported by Moreland council and other key local community groups.
Upfield Corridor Coalition is currently making our vision into a visual representation to highlight exactly what outcomes we want from the project such as – Station location and access, restoration of heritage, retention of vegetation, improved bike/pedestrian paths and public amenity that the whole community can use.
We are inviting our local politician’s, Level Crossing Removal Project spokespeople and council to attend the presentation and answer questions about the project.
Come along to the Town Hall meeting.
Also email your State MP and the Minister for Infrastructure.
