Unley Publications : Unley Life Summer 2017
As reported in the last issue of Unley Life magazine, our Mayor has taken a short leave of absence and I have the privilege of presiding over Council meetings during this time, and representing the Mayor at functions if he is unavailable. And what a privilege that’s been as I’ve been able to gain an even greater appreciation of our lovely city while attending lots of community events. Being out more in the community has reinforced my understanding that Unley has literally thousands of home based businesses and local entrepreneurs who stand to benefit from the co-working space that we’ve located in one of the council-owned cottages on Edmund Avenue. As the story in this issue of Unley Life describes, it’s a venture we’ve developed in conjunction with Prospect-based co-working enterprise Little City, who is confident that Unley provides a great opportunity to expand the concept. With summer here we all know the enormous environmental and cooling benefits provided by Unley’s famous tree-lined streets. And with more than 26,000 Council-owned trees in streetscapes and open spaces as well as tens of thousands of trees on private land, it’s a major responsibility that we take very seriously. But, as we describe in this issue, trees require continual maintenance and sometimes even removal and replacement, often requiring difficult decisions by Council. This story will help you understand Council’s careful approach to the issue. And there’s nothing I like more than drawing attention to Unley’s youngest achievers - and the Year 7 students at Black Forest Primary School who have been named State winners in the 2017 Search for the Nex t Tech Girl Superhero make wonderful examples. You can read all about their smartphone app, which helps children develop financial literacy. Don’t forget about our major events coming up, including the Unley Gourmet Gala and Santos Tour Down Under, as well as A Taste of Unley Road and An Evening Under the Stars in the Soldiers’ Memorial Gardens. View the What’s On calendar on pages 4 and 5 or visit Council’s website for more details. In the meantime we have much to look forward to and I take special pleasure in wishing you, our residents, local business operators and staff, my Council colleagues and Council staff, a safe and happy Christmas.
