Message from Darcy Byrne, Mayor of Leichhardt.

Dear Co.As.It. supporter, I am writing to inform you of Council's decision last night to consent to the sale of the Italian Forum Cultural Centre to the highly respected not-for-profit Italian community and cultural organisation Co.As.It.

Council has worked long and hard to save the Cultural Centre for the community.

In 1987, Premier Barry Unsworth granted land to the Italian-Australian community and your community has been fighting ever since to bring the vision of a state of the art cultural centre to life.

Last night's unanimous decision by Leichhardt Council means Co.As.It can make a permanent home for the Italian community on Norton Street in Leichhardt.

To celebrate the decision, please come along on Sunday to the official launch of the Renew Leichhardt project on Sunday 16 March, 11am-1pm, at the Italian Forum on Norton Street, Leichhardt.

Yours sincerely,

Darcy Byrne
