Forest Road, Hurstville, to undergo Big Wash

13/11/2017

Following the results of a recent survey with members of the local area, Council will soon undertake a Big Wash of Forest Road, Hurstville, on Friday 24 November 2017.

Georges River Council Mayor Cr Kevin Greene said Council recently conducted a survey where members of the community were asked what they valued in town centres across the local area.  

“The results, which will help inform Council’s new Place Making Program and draft Economic Development Strategy, found the number one thing people in Hurstville value is the cleanliness of public spaces,” Mayor Greene said.  

“In response to this finding, Council will undertake a Big Wash along Forest Road, which will include footpaths, shopfronts and awnings.”  

“By cleaning Forest Road, we can make the area more appealing to local shoppers including business owners and visitors.”   

“This project also complements Council’s wider efforts of reducing the instance of graffiti across the local government area,” he added. 

Mayor Greene said this is a perfect example of Council being proactive in responding to the needs and values of the local community.  

“There will also be a number of other initiatives Council will be running in the first half of 2018 to make Hurstville cleaner, greener and more attractive to members of the local area,” he added.  

The Big Wash is expected to take place between midnight and 5.00am on Friday 24 November.
