Committee to advise on NYE at Edinburgh Gardens chosen
23 May 2014
A number of Yarra residents will join a committee to advise on NYE plans in Edinburgh Gardens.
Earlier this month, Council called on commuity nominations to join the committee.
Following a turnout of crowds estimated between 15,000 and 20,000 on December 31, 2013, Council resolved to form a working group that would look at possible formats for how the Gardens are managed on New Year's Eve and Australia Day.
Council received 19 nominations from Yarra residents to join the committee, which will begin meeting later this month.
Three spaces on the committee had originally been allocated, but following the nomination process the community membership was expanded to five.
The following people were selected: David Trimboli, Jess Lilley, Elly Symons, Gerard Bagnara and Hazel Brown.
They will be joined on the committee by a representative of Victoria Police, Clare Carmody (YAARTs) and Robyn Gawenda (Yarra Youth Ambassador).
Council will be represented by Mayor Jackie Fristacky, Cr Roberto Colanzi, Cr Say Gaylard, Cr Simon Huggins and Cr Stephen Jolly, along with a number of officers.
