Save our park

Good news! The Council has reached an agreement with the Dept of Education to purchase the parkland at Beech Drive for an affordable price – $900,000. This will be paid from developer contributions, money that is already set aside for open space in Suffolk Park. It still leaves funds for our other projects.
