In a short film of interviews with people in Bay St which kicked off the evening, here are some things people said:
'it's the world's most liveable place in the world's most liveable city'
'everyday's like a holiday'
'I wouldn't live anywhere else'
'its like a small town'
Tonight many, many people spoke about their sense of community.
Is this your experience?

The City of Port Phillip is still seeking clarification about the boundaries of the suggested area designated for urban renewal.
As you would know, the land between Williamstown Road and the Westgate freeway is part of the City of Port Phillip, whereas the area on the other side of the freeway is part of the City of Melbourne.
Is the Minister referring to Fishermans Bend in the City of Melbourne, or in the City of Port Phillip or both?

Yet this is THE entrance to Bay St and Port Melbourne.
How could this area be improved?

When the deck has been re-constructed, when the Gatehouse has been re-furbished - then what? What and how might these spaces be used in a way that adds interest to the Port Melbourne Waterfront?
Now that the restoration work is very visibly proceeding, [see the time lapse sequence on the Major Projects Victoria website] and completion is in sight, this question moves into the foreground.
The study area for the Port Melbourne Waterfront includes the Promenade, Princes Pier, Waterfront Place, Beach St [between Princes and Bay], and the Bay and Beach St intersection
Hope you can make it to the information session on Wednesday evening 9th February from 6.30 pm at Port Melbourne Town Hall.

thanks to Ron Cassano for the photo
The intensity of the rain resulted in
- flash flooding and water overflowing gutters and covering streets in low lying areas
- some cars were stranded and will have been water damaged
- a number of homes were inundated and lost power
- some street signals ceased working and a number of roads were blocked
A coordination centre was set up at St Kilda Town Hall and Council officers have been working with the SES and the Police overnight.

- stairs on the pedestrian path making it difficult or inaccessbile to people wheeling prams or in wheelchairs
- arising from this, conflict between cyclists and pedestrians on the cycle path
- the towers that open directly into the path of oncoming cyclists
On the other hand, there are the things to love:
- the man with the small dog who watches the sea
- watching the ships come and go
- admiring the beacon in its many moods
What are your thoughts about the Promenade? Come and tell us at the two sessions scheduled for 9 and 24 February at the Port Melbourne Town Hall. The background report discusses the Promenade in more detail. The report is listed under library on the project page if you click here.
