FMC meeting coming to Parkville

FMC meeting coming to Parkville
Carol Saffer

It is Parkville’s turn to host the City of Melbourne’s Future Melbourne Committee meeting, live and in-person in the elegant surrounds of the Treacy Centre, on Tuesday, April 12.

As part of a new initiative by the council, it schedules the FMC meeting once a month away from the Town Hall, with the first held in Carlton in February.

It is an opportunity for residents to personally engage with the councillors and staff over refreshments at 5pm before the meeting officially kicks off at 6pm, with everyone invited to stay and observe a locally-focused agenda.

Following the close of the official proceedings, residents are encouraged to put forward any questions they may have.

President of the Parkville Association Rob Moore said it was absolutely fantastic for the suburb of Parkville that the council was coming there for its first meeting.

“It will be a great opportunity for residents to meet the councillors face to face and socialise with them first and then mix with them afterwards,” he said.

“They will be able to see first-hand how the meetings work.”

The Treacy Centre is located at 126 The Avenue, Parkville. The meeting agenda will be published on the council’s website a week in advance •
