Auburn Infrastructure

Significant repair work has been carried out to the corner of Brothers Hill Road/Curling St/ King St. Local residents would be aware that it had previously been a dangerous traffic hazard. CGVC have also worked on the King St/Wakefield River walkway, doing major repairs after flood damage last year.

There is still a clear need for a concrete spoon drain to be installed in St Vincent St where Dennis Creek crosses over. ACDC will continue to lobby for this project to be budgeted for, by CGVC.

Fund my neighbourhood project: Auburn Institute

ACDC was unsuccessful with its submission to the Fund MY Neighbourhood Government funding round at the end of 2017. Efforts were made to encourage community members to go online and register a vote for our project. Unfortunately, we did not receive sufficient votes. our project received approximately 80 votes- the winning projects in our area received 85-130 votes. Not sure if we will try this source of funding again, as it was dependent on each voter having access to the internet,  an individual email address, and an individual mobile phone.

Christmas eve in the Park

The local Christmas Eve event in Auburn was a great success. there were many families, children, chatter and relaxation. A thank you must go to Auburn Traders and the Auburn Primary School Governing Council for their co-operation in planning and running the event on the night. A special thank you goes to the Primary School students who gave their time to help serve the food on the night. It is hoped that local Auburn volunteer groups can continue to work together for the benefit of our community.

Centenary Park

A small team of volunteers is continuing to water the young plants in Centenary Park, as the weather continues to be so dry. A second section of garden may be developed to the south of the existing bed, as that particular patch is being fed with the waste water of the septic system. This is a topic for further discussion at an ACDC meeting.
