The TDRU still needs Community Support for new complex

If you’re attending Friday or Saturday finals this weekend please show your support for our plan to move to Murray by signing the petition at the front gate.   Council’s Planning and Development Committee have approved the Hugh Street site for development, but it is yet to be approved through full council. There is still work to be done. The project will be decided on at the next Council meeting on Sept 22.  This meeting is open to the public and it would be great to get some of you to come to show your support.
