The meeting will be held from 7.30pm on Wednesday, November 20, in the Downer Community Hall, Frencham Place.

We will conclude our 2018 Annual General Meeting, with presentation of financial reports for 2016-17 and 2017-18.

We will then conduct our 2019 AGM.

This will be the first time, under our new constitution, that all north Canberra suburbs can be represented on our committee.

We will consider a motion on the future of the Civic Pool, and provide an update on the ACT Planning Review.

The Environment and Planning Forum was intended to provide important stakeholder engagement for the planning review.

On August 6 the Director-General of Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development unexpectedly disbanded the forum, saying that it "may no longer be fit for purpose."

He said that he "will work with the secretariat on a proposal of how we engage with stakeholders, including community councils and others, moving forward."

We hope to be able to provide an update on progress.

The meeting will also receive reports from the committee, from residents' associations and from our working group on Dickson Section 72 (the area east of the Dickson swimming pool).
