Not Cribbing It
L-R: Cr David Garnock (Mornington Peninsula Shire Cerberus Ward Councillor), Mary Budd (President Crib Point Advisory Group), Chris Munro (Mornington Peninsula Shire Project Officer), Paul Miller (Transfield - Shire maintenance contractor), Daniel Idczak (Transfield - Shire maintenance contractor), Toni Munday (Crib Point Advisory Group)
Works are underway around Crib Point to deliver a number of improvements to the town as part of a collaborative community and council project.
The works are an initiative of Crib Point Advisory Group, Mornington Peninsula Shire and the town’s broader community to work together on delivering minor infrastructure projects.
Local Cerberus Ward Councillor David Garnock said planning for the works began with the community around six months ago and will see a number of projects on the ground throughout June and July.
He said a major focus of the program is on Arthur Peterson Reserve, Crib Point shopping precinct, Disney Street shopping precinct and a number of footpaths.
“Works will include ‘Welcome to Crib Point’ signage, planting of trees, vegetation pruning, landscaping, painting, street furniture installed at Arthur Peterson Reserve and around shopping precincts, completion of missing footpath links to Park Road and Stony Point Road to connect pedestrian paths, and minor car park works in Arthur Peterson Reserve including grading and creation of a double vehicle entry point.
The Shire will roll-out similar community projects in Mornington Park and Baxter over the coming months. Crib Point community members are invited to contact the Shire about ideas they may have for their township by emailing email@example.com or calling 5950 1272.
SUSTAINABLE CITY AWARD
Frankston City has taken out top honours at the 2015 Keep Australia Beautiful Victoria Sustainable Cities Awards
The Awards recognise and celebrate positive actions taken by individuals, councils, environmental groups, schools, students and local community groups.
Mayor Sandra Mayer says the accolades are a huge honour and are testament to the City taking a strong position by aiming for carbon neutrality by 2025 as well as adopting Council’s 10-year Environment Strategy released earlier this year.
Frankston City will represent Victoria at the Keep Australia Beautiful National Sustainable Cities Awards later this year.
