First Victory- City Council votes to support a park on Chamber st site
Just to let you know the City Council tonight passed a motion in support of a park on Chamber st.
This is the first major victory in that the City Manager confirmed they won't be moving to dispose of the site as they had planned.
As you are aware the notice for expressions of interest went out and tenders were received. It was planned that they would be selling off the land early next year. This now won't happen.
We will now need to move to re-zone the land as a green space and try to secure capital funding for the development of a park.
I want to thank you all for your lobbying efforts which paid off tonight. We haven't won entirely yet but this is significant victory in securing a park for the area.
Cllr Rebecca Moynihan
