Myrnong Ward June/July update

We are working hard to ensure safe travel for the whole community, including a number of major safety improvements in Myrnong Ward. We will see significant upgrades for two underpasses on the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail, as well as the completion of works along Kent Street to make it safer for people walking or cycling.

We’ve also recently updated our walking maps to inspire you to rediscover your local area by foot! There are so many benefits to walking for you and the environment. And if you’re looking for some company, why not join a walking group?

About Cr Marshall

Tell us about yourself

I'm a lawyer who lives with my husband and five young children in Ascot Vale.

I'm involved in a range of community organisations and, like many other parents, spend most of my weekends ferrying children around to activities!

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, listening to music, trivia nights and watching stand up comedy. I also love spending time with family and friends.

What do you hope to achieve in your term as Councillor?

At the end of my term, I hope to have been part of a council that made sensible decisions reflecting both the short and long term needs of the people of Moonee Valley. This is particularly so in relation to developments and issues arising out of developments such as parking, traffic management and protection of residential amenity. I also hope this council does all it can to protect and preserve our heritage, waterways and neighbourhood character.

I also hope that we will have improved the way Council engages with the community. It's important that community concerns and wishes are heard and understood by Council so that our decisions are fully informed and in the best interests of the community as a whole.

What do you think are Moonee Valley’s greatest strengths?

Moonee Valley is filled with beauty, opportunity and diversity.

Walk around Moonee Valley and you’ll see great parks, stunning period homes, bluestone laneways and the mighty Maribyrnong. We have wonderful shopping strips, each with their own character and feel. All around, we are surrounded by reminders of our heritage and history.

Most of all, we have a real sense of community and pride in where we live. You walk down the street and know your neighbours. Moonee Valley people look after each other and value what makes our community special. We also understand that it is worth fighting to preserve those things that make Moonee Valley so unique.
