I am watching with great expectation as the new Cove Civic Centre emerges on the corner of Ramrod Avenue and Ragamuffin Drive at Hallett Cove. This much awaited library, community and business complex is creating much excitement and anticipation.

The new precinct, which includes the Baptist and Lutheran Churches, will provide the community with a civic heart. Upon completion, our library will move from its temporary home, which was once a chemist shop, to a place of pride within our community.

Where are you?  Come and visit sometime. I know you have chosen me to represent you but I miss you.  I need your support. Just seeing you there can be reassuring that I understand your needs for our communities. Community participation is the missing link. I know you don’t need an invitation.  The door is always open.  Please drop in. Council meeting times are available for you online or just ring and find out. Look forward to seeing you soon.

Where we live is one of the most important lifestyle choices that we make.  Diverse housing opportunities for now and the future providing the opportunity for aging in place must be considered. I am reminded constantly of the need for smaller homes on smaller parcels of land in the southern suburbs of Marion.  Retirement opportunities in southern Marion are very restricted.  Council is aware that this issue needs to be high on its agenda.
