Mayor’s Community Day
A decision was made for the League to participate once again in the Mayor’s Community Day, 27th March. Mara suggested that MBCL should purchase/acquire light weight trestles, table and display stand for paintings. New petition forms and hand-outs to be organised. Would the Home Environment Group like to be involved with the League again?
Work continuing on the removal of non-endemic trees. The balance of the Park funding is $1074. Friends of Bradshaw Park plan to participate in the Mayor’s Community Day with plant sales and a display.
Vacant industrial land abutting the freeway reservation has been sold to Myer Cole. Springvale council has issued permits to build on this land. Applications for two further developments are imminent. The freeway reservation is unchanged despite request to the Minister for Conservation Mr Birrell to revise the proposed route to remove the intrusion into Braeside Park.
Westernport and Peninsula Protection Society Inc
