Quotes from our community
Infrastructure and roads that can cope with the influx of visitors and residents.
Mitchell lacks good transport. Our trains are slow and poorly serviced, and the Hume is reaching capacity. Investment is needed now.
I run a lot and would love to see a bike/walk path from Wallan to Craigieburn via the back road. There is already a dirt track, but it’s filthy and feels unsafe.
Accessible walking spaces so we can rely less on cars. More green spaces for families to play and people to enjoy nature, encouraging walking and physical activity.
