Mayor's Message

Autumn 2017


In the coming weeks you will receive the Community Perceptions Survey in your letterbox, which I encourage you to respond to.  We undertake this survey approximately every three years and it is important to hear from as many residents and ratepayers as possible. The results we gather will inform the guide for our future direction through the development of our Strategic Community Plan – Claremont Ahead 2027.   

We will also be contacting residents living in the West and East Wards in May, to ask specific questions in relation to installation of underground power in these areas. The Town is interested to hear your views, and to provide the community with cost implications and funding options for this important project.

Last week, I had the great pleasure of launching our annual art festival ART TRA 2017. The three day program was a celebration of art in all its forms and there certainly was a diverse display of unique and creative talent. With visitors from Claremont, the western suburbs and beyond, ART TRA was an opportunity to showcase the Claremont Town Centre, and all that it offers, to the wider community.
