|ANZAC Commemorative Naming Project - LAUNCH
||The ANZAC Commemorative Naming Project was recently announced by the State Government. The project, is being managed by the Office of Geographic Names (OGN), will raise Victoriansí awareness of the sacrifice of our veterans and communities and leave a lasting legacy.
Names that reflect the sacrifice of our veterans and communities will be assessed and proposed to form road, feature and locality name proposals.
OGN will seek council attendance at a road show where we will provide more information and a forum to meet with key local groups such as school teachers and RSL and historical society members.
Further information will be provided through our dedicated webpage: www.dse.vic.gov.au/namingplaces.
Please contact Rafe Benli, Project Officer, on 8636 2851 or email email@example.com if you require further information.
