Joondalup Weekender - - News -

The City will seek com­mu­nity feed­back to de­ter­mine the over­all level of sup­port for the es­tab­lish­ment of a fenced dog ex­er­cise area in one of its ex­ist­ing parks. If sup­ported by the com­mu­nity, five po­ten­tially suitable lo­ca­tions have been iden­ti­fied based on cri­te­ria that aims to min­imise the im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment and sur­round­ing res­i­dents. They are: • Bram­ston Park, Burns Beach; • Chich­ester Park, Wood­vale; • El­car Park, Joon­dalup; • Emer­ald Park, Edge­wa­ter; and • Me­lene Park, Dun­craig. Res­i­dents have un­til Mon­day 17 De­cem­ber to have their say. The re­sults of the com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion will then be col­lated and pre­sented to Coun­cil to seek di­rec­tion on pro­gress­ing the pro­ject. Feed­back can be sub­mit­ted via the com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion sec­tion of the City’s web­site

Hard copies of the feed­back form are also avail­able on re­quest.

Vari­able Mes­sage Board (VMBs) dis­plays and the in­stal­la­tion of tem­po­rary park­ing sig­nage along the eastern side of Fair­way Cir­cle are two mea­sures be­ing taken by the City to help coun­ter­act traf­fic-re­lated con­cerns as­so­ci­ated with the com­mu­nity-led Christ­mas lights dis­play at Prairie Dunes Place, Con­nolly. VMBs will ad­vise a tem­po­rary speed limit of 40 kilo­me­tres per hour and re­mind driv­ers to be mind­ful of pedes­tri­ans, to obey all park­ing rules, par­tic­u­larly in re­la­tion to pri­vate prop­erty, and to be re­spect­ful and cour­te­ous to other at­ten­dees. Pa­trols will also be con­ducted at var­i­ous times dur­ing De­cem­ber. VMBs will also be dis­played near Sam­son Court, Dun­craig – an­other street that tra­di­tion­ally holds a pop­u­lar dis­play. Any­one with con­cerns re­lat­ing to street light dis­plays should con­tact City Rangers. Of­fi­cers are avail­able on

24 hours per day, seven days a week. The City’s pop­u­lar Twi­light Mar­kets se­ries re­turns to Cen­tral Walk, Joon­dalup this Fri­day night. It is the first of four mar­kets to be held in the lead-up to Christ­mas with mar­kets also be­ing held on 7, 14 and 21 De­cem­ber, 5.30pm to 9.00pm. The per­fect place to find unique Christ­mas presents, each mar­ket of­fers lo­cally sourced, de­signed and cre­ated art, craft, cloth­ing, jew­ellery, home­wares and gift wares as well as de­li­cious food stalls and food trucks. The City will en­gage the lo­cal com­mu­nity to de­ter­mine the level of sup­port for the in­stal­la­tion of a toi­let fa­cil­ity at Shep­herds Bush Park, Kings­ley. Shep­herds Bush Park is an ex­tremely pop­u­lar com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity, with fea­tures in­clud­ing a bike skills track, play space, pic­nic equip­ment, and a pump and jump trail. The com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod is open un­til Wed­nes­day 19 De­cem­ber and on­line feed­back can be sub­mit­ted via the com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion sec­tion of City’s web­site Hard copies of the feed­back form are also avail­able on re­quest.
