Mayor Steve Staikos

Priorities for his Mayoral Term

Kingston Mayor Steve Staikos said 2018 is set to be a year full of significant investments in community facilities across Kingston.

“It is a great privilege and responsibility to be Mayor and I’m proud to lead such a vibrant, diverse and progressive community, as we work together to help create an even better, stronger City of Kingston”, Cr Staikos said.

“I’m passionate about investing in quality facilities, particularly those that help bring people together and support the disadvantaged in our community”.

“During 2018 we’ll be working closely with the community on how to protect our neighbourhoods from the impacts of development, through a new Housing and Neighbourhood Character Strategy, Affordable Housing Policy, and Car Parking Strategy,” Cr Staikos said.

“Council wants to ensure development is appropriate. and happening in the right places, our activity centres will be home to more apartments and highrise developments, while we are seeing dual-lot subdivisions, and new houses, come up in other residential areas”.

Cr Staikos also noted improvement works to take place on a range of key community infrastructure projects including:

Working to protect the Green Wedge;

Managing the transition away for tips and landfills to agriculture, parks, public open space, sporting facilities;

Finalising plans for the Chain of Parks Trail improvements at Dales Park Netball courts, to better serve thousands of local junior and senior netballers, which are almost complete;

Delivering our Bay Trail after over two decades of delay;

Building a new Acacia Avenue Kindergarten in Mentone;

Breaking ground on the new Mentone Reserve pavilion upgrade;

Updating Council’s Cycling Strategy with the goal of making cycling easier and safer;

Progressing our exciting plans of new ovals and pavilions for Dingley Village;

Completion of the new pavilions at Ben Kavanagh Reserve in Mordialloc, and the new pavilion at Gerry Green Reserve in Parkdale.
