Many in our community feel the maintenance isn't frequent enough, as it is often overgrown and littered with rubbish, including dangerous items. Sadly, it can be unappealing for residents to utilise and sometimes feels unsafe. The residents of Palmerston want City of Palmerston and the Minister for Infrastructure, Planning & Logistics to work together to make our Palmerston Escarpment safe and clean, by: 1. Increasing the overgrown vegetation maintenance 2. Increasing the attendance by rangers to remove rubbish 3. Increasing the attendance by authorities to move on itinerants Sign the petition to confirm you agree that more maintenance is needed. 2020/00177-0001
