It has been a busy month starting a few days after our meeting with the announcement by Minister Mick Gentleman, of a new suburb for Tuggeranong. We are happy to have the Minister here tonight to give us later in the evening, the details of this proposal. On the same day there was the official launch of the Calwell Master Plan. Copies can be seen on the ACT government website.
I would like to thank Frank DeVrins, who has now joined us on the Executive following the resignation of Darryl Johnston, Tom Lindenmayer, who has moved from Minutes Secretary to Webmaster and Albert Orszaczky who has agreed to do our minutes.
Last Saturday there was a Neighbour Day at the park near the Castley shops in Kambah, sponsored by the Asbestos Response Taskforce as a way of trying to bring the neighbourhood together in an area where there are a number of “Mr Fluffy” affected homes. The TCC had a stall there and I spoke to a number of people about various issues. Today I attended a lunchtime address on “Making Canberra’s Heart Sing” a talk by 2 Canadian eminent town planners talking about urban renewal and the lessons learnt from other cities. And on Thursday, I will be attending a whole day “Thought Leaders Forum” session on the transformation of Central Canberra.
Currently the TCC executive are working hard on working out what what we want for our new website. This will then be passed on to a designer to implement these ideas and we hope to have it up ASAP
There will be the official opening of the King Swim centre at Calwell next week on 13 April, where a plaque acknowledging the work of Eric Traise in ensuring that the Centre went ahead, will be unveiled.
