Guest Speaker – Darren Koch
Darren Koch, Democrat candidate for Isaacs, outlined the policies of his party and would welcome assistance in his campaign.
Mordialloc Foreshore & Environs
Members of the SGAP inspected Mordialloc Foreshore in late November with League members. Don Neale of the Sandringham Community Nursery volunteered to draw up a detailed plan which was presented to Council Officers in December. The plan has been sent to the Ministry for Planning and Environment. A further meeting will be held with Council Officers and MPE personnel, perhaps in March.
De Facto Bike Path
Possibility of a publicity photo to publicise the illegal bike path. A sign warning people to wear helmets has been erected at both ends of the path. Mary Rimington is to write to C.F&L seeking to have the width of the path reduced and wheeled traffic prevented from using the path. This is especially important given the recent rock fall from the cliffs. Re-vegetation and drainage problems must also be addressed.
