Yarra Ranges residents and visitors are can learn more about the RidgeWalk project in a series of drop-in sessions to be held in the hills through May.
The sessions, being held in Kallista and Kalorama, will be a chance to learn about the project, see the proposed route and chat with staff working on RidgeWalk ahead of the Draft Master Plan’s release in June.
Yarra Ranges Mayor, Tony Stevenson, said that conversations with community members had shaped the project to date.
“RidgeWalk will be so much more than just a trail through the hills – it’s going to be a space for education and culture, bringing to life the stories, art and landscape of the Dandenongs along a 39km trail.
“Through 2018, staff and consultants spoke to residents and visitors about art, history, transportation, recreation, parking and tourism, to gather feedback and start creating the draft Master Plan.
“That feedback has been vital – we’ve had community and history groups help shape the route and share their knowledge, to help us make this project the best it can be.
“I encourage everyone to come along, hear more about this project and share their thoughts with us, so we can keep doing just that.”
Drop in sessions will be held at:
- Grants Picnic Ground, Kallista Tuesday, 14 May, 8-11am
