Drought, bushfires and one heck of a downpour, and a Blacktown City Council Planning Proposal for Riverstone thrown in for good measure! It's been a demanding few weeks for businesses around North West Sydney, helped a bit by our continuing efforts with the Elara markets and donations to our farmers and firefighters over Christmas. Now we're halfway through February and we're engaged with Council on their proposal to rebuild Riverstone into something similar to Castle Towers/Hill, Rouse Hill and Parramatta. It's an exciting vision and has certainly got businesses and residents talking, although the plans avoid tackling the elephant in the room - the dreaded Riverstone traffic! This was the focal point for our February networking breakfast, held for the first time at the Riverstone RSL Sub-Branch, an ironic (and iconic!) location given Council wants to acquire this site for the 'new' Riverstone.
