    New Funding For Community And Cultural Centres

    Over 60 culturally diverse community organisations across Victoria will be provided with more than $3 million funding to support the restoration or construction of community facilities and cultural precincts.

    The funding will be provided through the Labor Government’s Community Infrastructure and Cultural Precincts (CICP) program.

    Projects that will be funded include:

    • a “Diversability Centre” project in Norland of Greater Geelong City Council, to create open plan office spaces and meeting spaces for diverse communities and the wider community

    • a Space 2b Design project in St Kilda to upgrade an existing community centre as a community enterprise that runs employment pathway programs to culturally diverse communities

    • upgrading the Hindu Society of Victoria’s car park in Carrum Downs

    Minister for Multicultural Affairs Robin Scott said, “This funding will strengthen community participation in our vibrant, multicultural society, and have an enduring impact on the character and infrastructure of Victoria.”


    Parking in Central Dandenong now easier

    A Council review of parking in central Dandenong has led to the introduction of increased time limits and cost reductions in some areas.

    Greater Dandenong Mayor, Councillor Youhorn Chea, said Council had listened to community feedback and taken action to provide shoppers, visitors and workers with options for longer and more affordable parking.

    “Dandenong is a vibrant urban centre and as a result parking is in high demand,” Mayor Chea said.

    For example, the two-hour maximum limit at Clow Street car park (opposite Dandenong Market) has been extended to three hours. Also, the fee has been reduced from $1.50 per hour to $1 per hour.

    In another example, on Princes Highway West the time restrictions have increased from two to four hours, and the cost has been reduced from $1.80 per hour to 50 cents per hour.

    Residents and visitors are urged to take note of the new parking restrictions signs across the city. For details about the parking changes go to www.greaterdandenong.com/parking.

    City of Whitehorse is celebrating Easter Saturday, 31 March, with its annual Community Fair, now in its 6th year. Everyone is invited to join in at Kingswood College, 355 Station St, Box Hill South, from 10am to 3pm.

    As it is Easter Saturday, there'll be an Easter Egg hunt every hour, starting at 11am.

    A new feature of the fair this year will be the Whitehorse Community Train Ride. There will also be the popular activities such as the ocean slide, kids train, animal farm, face painting, carnival games and prizes and more.

    On-stage entertainment is provided by children's superstar Bethany Fisher, street rappers, and cultural dancers. Musicians include multi-instrumentalist Ellery Cohen, the talented team from Balwyn's Wendy Samantha Productions, and up and coming three-piece rock band Paper Giants.

    The Community Fair is never complete without the wonderful selection of home-style Asian food, such as Char Kuey Teow, Nasi Lemak, Assam Laksa, Chicken Rice, Prawn Noodles, curry puffs, satays and plenty more. No one will have to go hungry.

    Food and ride vendors will not take cash, only tokens, which you can queue to buy at the fair or purchase in advance online. Entry to the fair is free.
