Local champion

Your local champion for McCutcheon Way is Ben Richards, who lives close by to the school. Ben writes:

As a local resident, I’d like to participate in formulating ideas for traffic calming measures. I’d probably begin by consulting with the various stakeholders involved:
– Locals
– Collingwood Allstars
– Collingwood College
– Local businesses
– Yarra Council

Currently I have no idea of what plans are in place, we’re expecting the locale to be very busy as soon as the basketball stadium begins operations.
