Council meeting 25 February

The happy news was shared Thursday morning, following a nervous overnight wait, that Metro has agreed to work with Moonee Valley Council to find engineering solutions and preserve Red while reinforcing the platform retaining wall.

Community meeting 24 Jan – Newmarket trees

About 80 people attended the meeting this morning.

Here’s what I, Rose, said at the meeting this morning. Jennie from the Flemington Association and Felicity from the National Trust also spoke. The Mayor and ward councillors responded to questions.

We will meet again at 5pm today for an update and to hear whether we need to be vigilant tonight to #SaveRed.
