On Tuesday 2nd August 2016, Yarra Council will vote on the proposed Rushall Reserve Shared Path Plan.
You can read the Nation Partners report, see Attachment 3: Outcomes of Consultation on Rushall Reserve Shared Path
Yarra Council Agenda for 2nd August 2016 - please refer to Item 11.1
Reading Attachment 4, 72% of 455 respondents to the online survey supported the plan as is (60%) or support the plan with modifications (12%). Also many Yarra residents and nearby local users groups are well represented.
It is vital that people attend this council meeting on Tuesday, to talk during Public Question Time, and looking at the BoM forecast, it's probably going to be an unappealing cold, possibly rainy Melbourne winter's evening. Despite that, it's absolutely essential we get the overdue Rushall Reserve path linkage over the line and finally built after almost thirty years of limbo and inaction!
