Three weeks ago my staff met with local residents and Parks to discuss park improvements at Melbourne Parkette. At this meeting the local residents shared with us the park history, its current use and their visions for the future. To launch their long term ‘park improvements plan’ (yet to be formally determined), residents organized a fall clean up. The City provided bags and gloves to the community and the clean up was a success. Thanks to everyone involved for all your hard work. I look forward to meeting with you soon to discuss next steps!
