After calling for nominations from the community earlier this year, Council is pleased to welcome eight new members to our Maroondah Environment Advisory Committee (MEAC)

As a Chair of the committee, I’m heartened by the positive response from members of the community keen to join MEAC, which demonstrates how passionate they are about wanting to protect our local environment.

The committee serves an important advisory role on various issues, including environmental sustainability, flora and fauna protection and carbon reduction.

The new committee will be tasked with advising on a number of key projects, among them Council’s Vegetation Review, Carbon Offset Policy, Greening the Greyfields, Waste Strategy, and the Maroondah 2040 vision.

With committee members having different expertise, backgrounds and interests, I’m sure we will achieve some positive outcomes for our community over the next four years.
