Call to City of Joondalup for commemorative plaque to acknowledge bushland saviour

KATE Pinnuck wants a commemorative plaque erected to acknowledge fellow Mullaloo resident Marilyn Zakrevsky’s work to save bushland at Korella Park.

“It marks 20 years this year that Mullaloo’s Korella Street bushland was saved from being developed into residential land,” Ms Pinnuck said.

“Marilyn campaigned and gained the support of the council so an oval could be constructed and the remaining couple of hectares of bushland conserved for passive recreation and wildlife.”

She also formed the Friends of Korella Bushland Group in 1995. “I would like to see Marilyn’s contribution to the park acknowledged by erecting a plaque on the fence or a seat,” she said.

Joondalup chief executive Garry Hunt said the City only installed plaques as memorials.
