We would like to wish everyone a very happy new year! We look forward to a fresh, more hopeful year this year. Almost a year has passed since Lusk Action Group was formed and now can we look back on the extraordinary but productive year that we had! We formed in February in response to concerns about development issues in Lusk, but quickly realised there was room for us to use our structure for the betterment of Lusk as a whole. We conducted an online survey. Based on the results, we developed and delivered a library proposal to Fingal County Council in October and we continue to lobby for this through our politicians. It is also our intention to deliver a Youth Services Facility proposal over the coming months. We have been in regular contact with Foroige regarding this. We have regular contact with the Lusk Village Quarter developers regarding progress. We also have regular contact with the retail agents who will deal with the retail units when the development is complete, so that we have a better chance of being provided with businesses that we as a community want and need. During the past year we have kept the community informed regarding housing development proposals. We encourage community involvement, so that our collective Lusk voice becomes louder. We have promoted local business online through this very difficult year. We have also engaged with An Garda Siochana, Foroige and Lusk Community College regarding anti-social and criminal behaviour. We have established regular communication with Fingal County Council during the past year and that is ongoing.Minister Joe O’Brien and Senator Regina Doherty are assisting us and advising on community development. And of course, our own Cllr Robert O’Donoghue has been a huge asset to our committee and our community. We fundraised for and organised the Christmas lights for the Main Street, which brightened up our December and brought us some much needed cheer! We believe we have a great town, with wonderful, talented people and we as a group will continue to work hard for us all in 2021. Happy New Year.
