Docklands to host next council meeting
The City of Melbourne will host the next of its “neighbourhood series” of Future Melbourne Committee (FMC) meetings in Docklands on May 17 at 6pm.
As part of an effort to bring a slice of local democracy to its constituents, the council this year announced that it would be bringing one of its two monthly FMC meetings to a different neighbourhood in 2022.
It marks the first time the council has staged meetings outside of Melbourne Town Hall, with Carlton, West Melbourne and Parkville having already hosted FMC meetings in February, March and April, respectively.
On May 17, Docklands will host the fourth in the series at The Hub @ Docklands at 80 Harbour Esplanade, with the meeting’s locally tailored agenda to be released on Thursday, May 11 at 2pm.
The community meetings also allocate time beforehand for locals to socialise with council and staff •
