Our final meeting for this year is this Wednesday, the 12th of December.

The meeting will be at the usual time and place: 7:00pm, Alexandria Town Hall, 73 Garden St.

We’re lucky enough to have council in attendance, talking about the City’s Community Strategic Plan, Sydney 2050, and how we can have input into it.

Unless some urgent issue comes out of the woodwork, this will be our last meeting until February.
