Yesterday the Ombudsman tabled a report in Parliament — Investigation into three councils’ outsourcing of parking fine internal reviews. The report makes three recommendations for reform to the State Government and two recommendations for the three councils subject to the review — including Glen Eira City Council.
The desire to make our activity centres more vibrant and engaging is a recurring theme called for by community members during consultation.
To liven up the streets of Murrumbeena, Glen Eira Artist Society, Pianos Recycled, Murrumbeena Traders Association and Metro Trains have come together to upcycle a once loved piano activating the centre with music and colour.
The piano is designed to start conversations, enliven the area and entice passers-by to play. Pianists of all-abilities are encouraged to play the piano, which is located at Murrumbeena Station, corner Murrumbeena and Neerim Roads.
The piano was part of the recent community led Murrumbeena Arts and Culture Festival, which offered an array of workshops, exhibitions, live music and entertainment around Murrumbeena.
Who knows where it might pop up next?
