Broadmeadows gets boost from a new board

May 29, 2017 by  

A Broadmeadows Revitalisation Board (BRB) has been tasked with promoting the suburb.

Local politician Frank McGuire is to play a leading role on the BRB, and newsletter printing in Broadmeadows could be used to showcase the achievements of BRB in the future.

The focus of the strategy is to attract a greater level of investment to the area by providing training. McGuire explained:

“This initiative will help postcodes of disadvantage to again become postcodes of hope by creating opportunities to build smarter, healthier, better connected and sustainable communities.”

The State Government took action by appointing members to the board, reflecting the fact that it has acknowledged something should be done to support local progress. Lily D’Ambrosio, a minister with responsibility for Suburban Development, has declared a variety of policies for the area. She came forward with some of the announcements in the town hall at Broadmeadows.

One of the major proposals is already being implemented. Over $14m has been allocated to the Broadmeadows Revitalisation Project (BRP), and there is going to be more attention paid to liveability going forward.

The Mayor of Hume, Drew Jessop, has underlined the potential of Broadmeadows. He stated that its geographical position as a possible gateway for economic growth is a positive one. Further, he indicated that local jobseekers should get assistance in Campbell Field, Meadow Heights and Broadmeadows.
