COCKBURN mayor Logan Howlett shares the City’s goals for 2019.
“This year is a major milestone for the City of Cockburn as we reach our 40th anniversary.
Our celebrations will begin with the launch of a new local history website in Summer.
In February I am delighted that local band San Cisco will headline our annual concert in Cockburn Central.
We will be holding our second Coogee Live art and cultural festival on Saturday, 9 and Sunday, 10 March.
I would encourage you to head to the City’s website to have a look at the many wonderful performances and activities planned.
We continue to regard beautification of the City as a top priority, and have allocated more than $7.7 million this year on new and improved parks and environmental projects, including almost $0.5 million on street tree planting and planting more than 50,000 plants within selected conservation areas.
Residents can look forward to a range of new facilities and improved infrastructure around the City.
The Lakelands Hockey Facility and Clubrooms will be completed, a nature playground will be built at Coolbellup’s Len Packham Reserve and road and bridge widening will be completed on Spearwood Avenue, Jandakot Road and Armadale Road.
Community consultation is always at the forefront for the City.
In 2019, we will continue to work with all of our community and reference groups including the children’s reference group, disability reference group, aboriginal reference and youth advisory collective.
I am looking forward to what promises to be another big year for the City and all of its residents.”
