Our Future Directions Sub Committee comprising Greg Martin, Trevor Neate, John Underwood and myself have been consulted with the development of this document.
This committee will be meeting with Parks on Monday the 20th of November to receive further briefings on the development of this plan to this stage.
On Wednesday the 22nd of November at 7:00pm we will hold a meeting with interested Club members to provide feedback and begin gathering your views before we prepare a Club response to Parks by the 8th of December.
There is a long and at times painful history with proposals to make Mornington Harbour safer and to accommodate the wide spectrum of users and visitors of this precinct.
From the yacht club's perspective there are deficiencies in the concepts presented at this point which we will endeavour to address. Both Parks and the marine engineers engaged for this project have been constrained not only from accommodating the wishes of many different parties but also by their ministerial office given the state of Victoria's finances.
It is very important at this juncture that MYC present a united well thought out response which is cognisant of the wide harbour demands and needs and ensures the best outcome from funds provided by the State government at this point of time.
I look forward to briefing you further on Wednesday the 22nd of November, listening and gathering your views for our Future Directions Sub Committee to progress.
