Rose Hill Ward June/July update 

MV2040 will be our long-term plan to deliver a fair, green, beautiful, connected and thriving city. Thank you to everyone who gave us feedback on our draft MV2040 Strategy.
The final strategy is expected at a June Council Meeting for endorsement. We advocate for the interests of our community including seeking support from State and Federal Governments for high-priority services and infrastructure.

Our new Advocacy Strategy outlines how we’ll advocate for important projects, including East Keilor Leisure Centre, the Moonee Ponds Creek revitalisation and increased tree canopy across Moonee Valley.
