Armadale City e_News





Your monthly news update from the City of Armadale.

Issue #8 - November 2016


Pavilion on the Go

The City of Armadale’s $8 million Harrisdale pavilion and playing fields is near completion and will be ready for use in early 2017.

With completion expected in late December, current work on the pavilion includes glazing, internal fitout, and construction of the car park.

Following this, the children’s playground and shade structure will be installed next to the pavilion.

The pavilion and playing field are strategically located between Harrisdale Primary School and Harrisdale Secondary School on Gracefield Boulevard and all three sites form part of an important education and community precinct to service the quickly growing community.

The precinct is the first of nine where the City will enter into shared use arrangements with the Department of Education over its use, maximising efficient use of public open space and creating far better facilities for the community.

The remainder of the shared sites will be delivered in the City’s high-growth areas over the next 15 years.

Friendly face of City shopping

Armadale shoppers will see new, friendly faces in Jull Street this summer with the City of Armadale introducing Community Liaison Officers who will be acting to ensure the City’s main shopping precinct remains a vibrant and welcoming place for families during the festive shopping period.

Working in cooperation with the two major shopping centres, the City trial will run from November to January and will evaluate whether the presence of Community Liaison Officers can provide a more welcoming shopping venue for patrons.

Armadale Mayor Henry Zelones OAM JP said the project forms part of the City’s commitment to ensuring a positive experience in the area.

“The important thing is to measure whether the officers can make a difference to the shopping experience,” he said.

“That will give the business community a good guide as to whether it is worth extending these services into the future.”

Are you bushfire ready?

The City is encouraging residents to be proactive and reduce fuel loads now, to make their properties bushfire safe ahead of this summer.

Until 30 November, all property owners with an area over 1200sqm require a Permit to Burn should they wish to undertake a hazard reduction burn on their property.

As burning is prohibited from 1 December until 31 March residents need to act now. It is critical that people living in bushfire prone areas maintain protection zones around their properties. It may be the difference between losing and keeping your house in the event of an emergency situation.

Preparing your home and property for bushfires can make a world of difference for firefighters, who may have to prioritise between which houses are saveable and which are not.

Permits can be obtained from Ranger Services at the City of Armadale’s Administration Centre on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3 to 4pm.

Alternative arrangements may be made by contacting Ranger Services on 9394 5000 during normal office hours.

Gloves on against mozzies

City residents are reminded that with the onset of warmer weather there will be more mosquito activity and therefore a greater risk of mosquito borne disease.

Recent substantial rainfall combined with increasing temperatures, and predictions of higher than usual tidal activity in coming months, are likely to favour increased breeding of mosquitoes

The City urges everyone to be alert and take extra precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes over the coming spring and summer months.

The City is partnering with the WA Department of Health to launch the Fight The Bite campaign this year.

Visit our website for more information and tips on avoiding the annual mosquito surge.

Our Christmas spectacle

In an annual Christmas tradition, the City of Armadale invites you to join in the festive spirit of the holiday season with Carols by Candlelight on Friday, 2 December.

This heart-warming Christmas event is bursting with community celebration and pride as it showcases some of the incredible talent from the Armadale area.

Kicking off in the early hours of the evening in the Jull Street Mall, the Christmas Parade, featuring a variety of colourful characters and local community groups, provides a wondrous spectacle for the young and imaginative.
