We use email, facebook, face to face and on-line meetings, and our website to raise the issues and interests of members and friends. FitzTalk is our occasional email bulletin which updates members and friends on our current issues.
‘FitzTalk in the Pub’ is a face to face opportunity to meet other members and friends and participate in discussions on issues that are of interest to residents.
We invite members and friends to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with matters that matter to them both local and City wide.
It could be a resident amenity issue, a planning proposal or an idea for improving your neighbourhood.
We reach out to other community based organisations that wish to inform, and have agendas which match our Mission and Purpose.
FRA face to face or zoom meetings will provide an opportunity to discuss planning issues, Council policies and strategic plans.
Planning of our future is a major issue for residents and friends. We review Planning Applications submitted to Council where they affect our heritage, streetscape or amenity of current and future residents and we take action.
We prepare objections to Council with the support of residents and where necessary become a party to Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal hearings and put our case for rejection or change.
FRA General Meetings provide an opportunity to have a more formal engagement with members and to plan future activities.
Annual General Meeting.
The AGM is an opportunity to adopt the Annual Report, elect Committee members for the following year and hear from a speaker of interest to the FRA. The last Annual General Meeting was held on 7 November 2022 when the FRA 2021 to 2022 Annual Report was adopted.
So you can keep up-to-date via Facebook and FitzTalk or email us via email@example.com if you would like to raise an issue or wish to offer your support for a specific cause.
You can participate as a member via –
- The FRA committee meets bi-monthly.
- The FRA publishes its events on Facebook and through FitzTalk bulletins.
- The FRA have previously run street and market stalls in various locations to engage with residents.
We welcome suggestions for events or topics of discussion.
