Join the February Homelessness Street Count

I encourage you to volunteer for the City’s eighth bi-annual Street Count of Rough Sleepers from 1-3am on Tuesday 21 February.

Council relies on volunteers to collect the data that helps monitor homelessness and track progress in getting people off the streets. In February 2011, 418 people were counted sleeping rough.

The City has a training session on 13 February and volunteer manual so you know what to do, but you need to register before 6 February. You can register online or get download and send in the form from the City’s website.

The City of Sydney has a dedicated Homelessness Unit to help address the needs of people experiencing homelessness – and we are Australia’s only local council to do so.

Two weeks after getting it wrong, the Daily Tele 'clarifies' their errors. But today's effort gets it wrong too. Despite claims in this 'clarification', the Tele always knew @cityofsydney was not involved in this project because we and CoDesign Studio told them so from the beginning. They won't let the facts get in the way of their agenda.

This is Mary Veronica, the new tunneling machine which will help flood-proof Green Square. Anyone living in or passing through the Green Square area during April's torrential rains would remember chest-high water and flooding. Work has commenced on a new 2.4km underground stormwater drain to reduce the damage of such floods and help make this area a great place for thousands of people to live and work safely. At a cost of more than $90 million, this project is a key component of the City’s $440 million transformation plan for new infrastructure and community facilities.
