Albany Artificial Reef Update

The Amazing Albany Surf Reef Needs You…….again…..still. (22nd January 2022)

At a meeting on the Tuesday the 1st of February 2022 (meeting starts at 6pm but be there at 5.45pm as the doors close at 6pm) the City of Albany Councillors will decide on whether to submit another application in the next round of the Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) and if so, how much of the City budget they will commit to the project (the more the better of course….to sweeten the deal).

There are several new Councillors who may not be overly aware of the project or the extent of the community support for it.

We need a LARGE turnout of supporters at the meeting. Placards in hand if you like. We will have several speakers who will each have 4 mins to express their support of and positives about the REEF.

Everyone has the right to speak. If you  choose to be a speaker then a coordinated approach is preferred to make sure we cover as many aspects as possible and not have too much overlap.

If you want to speak at the meeting then please give me a call so we can discuss what focus you might address.

After the public submissions you can stay for the formal meeting to see the outcome of the vote or you will have an opportunity to leave.

Be there……spread the word.
