A taskforce charged with reinvigorating the entire Homebush area has been introduced by Strathfield Mayor, Cr Daniel Bott.
Cr Bott, who will also be heading the taskforce, said the aim of the group would be to capitalise on the many great aspects of the suburb, while ensuring Council caters for the diverse Homebush community.
"I have introduced the Homebush Revitalisation Taskforce to ensure one of the Strathfield LGA’s most iconic and important suburbs continues to live up to its reputation," he said.
"There are already many positive aspects to Homebush – for instance, the Homebush Village on Rochester Street is a thriving town centre with a wide range of boutique and specialist shops and restaurants.
"In addition, Homebush is home to the Mason Park Wetland, a bird habitat that sees birds fly from as far as China, Japan and Siberia during spring and summer.
"However, we need to ensure that Homebush not only remains a great place to work, live and play, but that we’re also catering to the needs of the diverse community that resides within the suburb.
"I am looking forward to forming this taskforce, and we will soon be recruiting taskforce members to get on with the job of improving this great suburb."
