Have say on town future
MUNDARING Residents and Ratepayers Association is hosting a forum to consider a draft masterplan for Mundaring town centre.
Association president Tom Johns said the Shire of Mundaring had requested community feedback on the plan by 4pm on December 23.
“Our forum is a chance for those living in Mundaring and Mahogany Creek to ask questions of the consultants who produced the plan.
“This is the best way to make an informed contribution to the debate,” he said.
The plan presents a vision of how Mundaring could develop over the next 20 years.
“Suggested changes are very significant – changes to zoning could see people living in the town centre in accommodation that is very different to what we have now,” Mr Johns said.
Vice- president Kate McHardy said Great Eastern Highway had split the town in half for many years.
“Making Nichol Street an important north- south connector is a controversial idea that de- serves serious consideration,” she said.
Association secretary Tom Burbidge viewed the plan as a way to make Mundaring a better place to live, work and enjoy.
The draft masterplan is available to view on the shire website and in hard copy at shire libraries.
The free forum will be held from 7.20pm on Tuesday, December 6 at Mundaring Sharing, 3 Craigie Place, Mundaring.
Call 9295 1710 to request a seat or email mdgtv@ highway1. com. au.
Tom Johns, Kate McHardy and Tom Burbidge are encouraging people to have a say on the masterplan.
