A mes­sage from your Mayor

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

Hello ev­ery­one We’ve al­most reached the half-way mark for the year, and what a great six months it has been. We kicked off the year with a trip to Wood­stock as part of our pop­u­lar Twi­light Trios se­ries, un­veiled a new and im­proved web­site in Fe­bru­ary, be­gan the much-needed re­fresh of Aqual­ife in March and de­liv­ered a month full of cre­ativ­ity for the 2017 Arts Sea­son in April. We have re­ceived your thoughts on ban­ning plas­tic bags, the Lath­lain Precinct Re­de­vel­op­ment Project, pub­lic health, safer neigh­bour­hoods and so­cial in­fra­struc­ture – to name just a few. Pub­lic par­tic­i­pa­tion on the Evolve project also ended and we are now busy fi­nal­is­ing the Strate­gic Com­mu­nity Plan that will guide our di­rec­tion for the next 15 years. You may also have no­ticed im­prove­ments and up­grades made to your sur­round­ings. Work is pro­gress­ing on the Lath­lain Precinct Re­de­vel­op­ment Project and it is al­ready pro­vid­ing ben­e­fits to our com­mu­nity. The Cause­way un­der­pass was up­graded to pre­vent flood­ing and light­ing was in­stalled at the multi-pur­pose courts at McCal­lum Park. Our li­brary was given a facelift and we can now boast about hav­ing in­ter­na­tional-stan­dard squash courts at Leisure­life. The sec­ond half of this year will be just as ex­cit­ing and pro­duc­tive. Keep up-to-date as things hap­pen through our web­site at

and be sure to fol­low us on Face­book,

Twit­ter and In­sta­gram. I hope that the rest of your year is safe, healthy and en­joy­able. Mayor Trevor Vaughan
