Moorabool Shire Council puts price on road safety for our children

This petition had 66 supporters

As a parent of two children attending Gordon Primary School and also as a local Moorabool resident and rate payer, I am creating this petition to lodge with the Moorabool Shire Council to express my utter disappointment with the local council for not including funding in their draft 2017/2018 budget for the proposed Gordon Primary School Dicker Street improvements.

Please support me by signing this online petition but before you do here is some back ground information.

Gordon Primary is growing at a rapid rate.

In March 2016, our school principal Mr Russell Cowan arranged for representatives from the local council to attend an on-site meeting to discuss concerns around traffic and parking arrangements for Gordon Primary School. The council observed and acknowledged in writing that the parking area is “reaching capacity” (this was over a year ago) and committed to developing a number of street layout options that would guide future considerations for parking arrangements.

Since the initial meeting between the school principal and local council representatives in March 2016, drawing proposals were drawn up by the council. Despite this the Moorabool council have chosen not to include funding for these upgrades in their proposed draft budget for 2017/2018. Since then the school has had a further 20 families join the school.

I as a parent believe the council is failing to protect the road safety of its younger community members.

Are they now prepared to put a price on our children’s safety?

Please sign this petition and insist on the Moorabool Shire Council to include funding for the Gordon Primary School car park upgrades in their 2017/2018 budget and to reduce speed zones around the school area to 40 km’s per hour.

Thank you
