FROM THE NEW PRESIDENT

 Where to in 2003? A topic on the agenda of the first meeting of the Executive Committee precipitated a number of ideas.  The priorities were deemed to be,

It is these community and resident values which frequently attract people to the area in the first place.  GCA looks forward to more of you joining and participating.

Development is a key issue at the moment with Ministerial approval being given for a 240 to 260 unit apartment complex on Greenwichís Duntroon Avenue, decisions to be made on Austin Street in Lane Cove, Council decisions being challenged in the Land and Environment Court, and approved developments not meeting their Conditions of Approval.  Dr Tony Recsei (Save our Suburbs) will be the speaker at the General Meeting on April 16th - put the date in your diary and come along.

WEB PAGE

The web site www.greenwich.au was always intended to be a community facility, not just an GCA web site

Work on the web site has now been completed that will allow other Greenwich community groups to use of it

This could be either a single page giving the name, general activities and contact information; or it may be several pages with additional group information such as a the soccer and the netball clubs including their season fixture program with dates, times, locations, and opposing teams to be easily accessible to interested members.

For other groups it may be just occasional information, such as FOGS when they're Fun Run is due, or the Greenwich Games during that year.

If a group already has its information on another site, a hyperlink can be put up to take enquires straight to that site

Any groups interested in using this facility should send in an email to admin@greenwich.org.au

AUSTIN STREET CAR PARK

All residents should have received in their letterboxes pamphlets showing the two proposals, Councilís and Woolworths, for the use of the car park site in Austin St behind the Council library.

If you do not have copies they are available at Council Chambers or at the libraries

One of the matters for discussion will be residents opinions of which of these is in the best interests of the community. Please study them and bring your views to the meeting
