Victoria’s Governor took a trip to Dandenong and landed in Little India.
Linda Dessau and her husband Anthony Howard met members of the Indian Cultural Precinct Taskforce, including Greater Dandenong Mayor Jim Memeti and Dandenong MP Gabrielle Williams, on Friday 8 September.
The Governor wanted to learn more about transforming the Foster Street district into Melbourne’s premier Indian cultural precinct.
Cr Memeti said the taskforce’s aim was to create a shared community-led vision for the precinct.
He said the council would receive $500,000 from the State Government’s Cultural Precinct Fund to develop it.
“Having the opportunity to meet with Ms Dessau is further confirmation of the State Government’s commitment to Dandenong and the growth and development of this precinct,” he said.
More than 85,000 people of Indian origin live within 20 kilometres of Dandenong’s Little India Precinct and more than 17,000 people from the Indian subcontinent choose to call the City of Greater Dandenong home.
