If you haven't read Southbank News yet, it is worth checking out. This past week they sent out their 100th edition of the monthly publication.
Although the About Us page says: The Southbank Local News serves the residents, businesses and visitors of postcode 3006 and the Montague Precinct of Fishermans Bend with their fill of local updates, there are articles that reach farther into the City of Port Phillip, such as the recent Movement at Waterfront Place piece.
A regular contributor is Trisha Avery from the Montague Community Alliance.
For those that are not familiar with the Montague Precinct, it is bound by Johnson Street, Boundary Street, City Road, and the M1 Freeway, right next to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and DFO.
The inclusion of this section of South Melbourne has helped inform and support the residents and businesses asking to be heard by the local and state governments about the intensive development of the area. The article this month includes information on the upcoming election in the Gateway
Ward of the City of Port Phillip, of which Montague is included.
I am thankful Trisha Avery has included me in the article saying:

Heather has lived in Port Melbourne for eight years, she has worked in the Montague Precinct and knows the area well. She started the very popular Facebook page Port Melbourne Focus (formerly Port Melbourne Families) and has been an active member of the community. In talking to Heather, she
seems energised by the opportunity to engage with the community and is clear about the challenges we face by living in a continual construction zone. Heather was keen to hear from everyone: email@example.com
