Well here we are, 18 months into our term in Council and I am pleased to announce that the following has been achieved.

Our new committee structure is underway, there are now 5 committees:

  • Finance and audit
  • People and culture
  • Infrastructure
  • Strategy
  • Urban Planning

Construction of the dog park in Reserve St Reserve is about to begin.

The Davenport and Seacombe Rd intersection after 12 months of discussion finally had its dedicated left turn applied (this was something that had been requested by many people during the election process, and I am pleased it has finally been achieved).

The BMX Club move is currently part of a feasibility study, we are eagerly awaiting the results of this study, so we can move on.

The long awaited fence at the southern end of the Cove Sports and Community Centre has been erected. This was a joint effort between Council and the BMX club, Council paying for the equipment and the BMX club providing the labour. Thanks must go to the BMX club for all their efforts and in particular Trevor Wigg.

Progress is being made on increasing soccer facilities for the southern Wards.

March saw a visit from Marion’s Sister City in Japan – Kokobunji’s Tokyo Keizai University. It's great hearing how impressed the students are by the Marion area. They always comment on our World Heritage listed Hallett Cove Conservation Park, the Living Kaurna Cultural Centre and our open spaces, views and beach.
