ADOPT-A-HOT-SPOT LAUNCHES IN HASTINGS

2013_09_13_1122.2

2013_09_13_1120

Communities across the Mornington Peninsula are constantly bombarded with graffiti tagging.  This type of vandalism makes the community feel unsafe and affects the general amenity of our towns and villages.    A number of community stakeholders have come together to initiate a new ‘Community Crime Prevention Program’ in working towards managing the problem.

This morning in Hastings, the Minister for Crime Prevention Edward O’Donohue and State of Member of Parliament for Hastings Neale Burgess announced funding of more than $310,000 to be allocated to fight graffiti across the state.  It was very exciting to see this public announcement being made in Hastings in support of the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Adopt-A-Hotspot program.   Hastings Ward Councillor David Garnock along with  the officers from the Department of Justice, the Shire’s CEO and other officers, Hastings Police, Westernport Chamber of Commerce and Hastings community members attended this important public announcement.

The Adopt-a-Hotspot program aims to co-opt community stakeholders as active partners, initiating either active clean-up and or removal strategies, creating artworks or vertical gardens and to ‘keep a close watch’ over the site, reporting any vandalism that may occur.   It is well established that if clean-up occurs immediately then it thwarts the vandals and indicates that the community is ‘protecting’ their public spaces.

Shops @ Hasting Park WestOne such site regularly attacked is Hastings West Park Village shops @ Wallaroo Place.  The Good Shepard Community House next door are working on strategies that engages young people from the neighbourhood in what could be done to enhance the wall, encouraging them to take a role in protecting this shared public space.

IMG_0460.a

Starting with a fresh coat of paint and the question of ‘If you could change what’s in the Westpark reserve, what would you like to see? has succeeded in connecting with local youth and adults to canvas their thoughts on what creative solutions could be considered in the space.   I commend the community house wholeheartedly in giving the neighbourhood an opportunity to make public comments and the community house is attempting to engage their community in support of their aspirations.  This is placemaking at its best.
