Dear Mr Mackenzie


Re: Molonglo River Park Concept Plan


Friends of Grasslands (FOG) was delighted to participate in the Wed 8th June forum on the Molonglo River Park Concept Plan where it became clear that some of the community concerns have at last been considered in recent plans for Stage 2.   However, major issues remain and FOG shares many of the concerns aired at that meeting.


In particular –

FOG looks forward to continued engagement in developing these and other issues involved in the next version of this Concept Plan.  Finally we thank ACTPLA for making the series of seven (Phase 2: opportunities and constraints and concept options) planning maps from Hassell available to forum attendees – they have been very useful in informing FOG and guiding our thinking.


Yours sincerely




John Fitz Gerald
