Recently I met Joseph at a Monash Council session on developing an Age Friendly city. It was remarkable to discover we were each working with other people to develop plans with the same overall intent: to improve the quality of life in Glen Waverley and surrounds by developing an open space on the current Central Car Park.
The plans differ in minor respects but they have strong common themes:
- The Central Car Park area should not be built on but left open and used by the people of Monash
- An open space has huge potential for bridging gaps between diverse cultural groups across all age groups in Monash
- Concentrated high rise development in Glen Waverley could have adverse effects on the community and the environment
- The community needs to be active in developing plans for such an area.
