15 February 2018 Meeting Notes

by Margherita on 19 February, 2018

Forty one people attended, including City of Fremantle staff and Neighbourhood Watch people. Unfortunately both Councillors Rachel Pemberton and Adin Lang were unable to attend this months meeting and were both missed even though apologies were given on their behalf with the explanation that they did both really did want to attend.

Neighbourhood Watch presented first and covered extremely valuable information about getting to know your neighbours, who to contact in different emergency situations and the fact that ultraviolet pens are now used for marking belongings and not engraving. For more information including how to get bin stickers, pamphlets, special marker pens etc, please check out the Neighbourhood Watch website.

Eloise then gave an update on proposed changes to Attfield Street indicating that everything had slowed right down, a traffic consultancy was to be engaged and no changes would occur without community consultation.

Julie then gave an inspiring and well researched  presentation on the “Vision for Hampton Road / Ord Street project” which was met with a resounding round of applause. At the end it was asked of the audience who was in agreement and who wasn’t. The majority (including council staff) were in agreement, with only 2 people who were not. That equates to 95% support for this vision for Hampton Road  / Ord Street.

David from City of Fremantle then gave another very informative presentation on the work and various projects being done on Hampton Road over the upcoming months and what was being planning for the next year or so. David and his colleagues Sri, Dwight and Gavin were on hand to then answer specific questions that arose.

It was very well received that the four council staff attended on the Hampton Road issue.

The topic of calming, beautifying and connecting eastern and western areas bisected by  Hampton / Ord generated lots of comments and discussion especially in relation to the wider area transport planning issues that it raised.
