In a WA first, the City launched Project Robin Hood in March to encourage community groups to transform open spaces.

The City offered workshops and community meetings to help create project ideas and more than 50 applications have now submitted applications for the funding. As part of the project, the City will fund and provide resources for the successful applicants up to the value of $100,000

The projects cover a broad range of categories including public art, improving or taking ownership of public parks and open spaces, placemaking, sustainability, and community gardens.With applications closed, it is now up to the public to pick the applications that deserve funding.

Voting opened Monday, July 1 with information and updates available through www.melvillecity.com.au/|projectrobinhood.

While the public will not be able to see live voting numbers, the City will feature the top three daily favourites until voting closes on July 14.
