About the Hills Community Recovery Committee

The Hills Regional Community Recovery Committee (RCRC) is supported by Yarra Ranges Council and has been established to help contribute to the recovery priorities of the Hills area electorate.

The Hills Regional Community Recovery Committee will have a crucial say into the long-term recovery from Covid-19, and the June storms that impacted the Hills region, particularly the suburbs of Belgrave, Emerald, Ferny Creek, Kallista, Kalorama, Lysterfield, Macclesfield, Menzies Creek, Monbulk, Mt Dandenong, Narre Warren East, Olinda, Sassafras, Selby, Sherbrooke, Silvan, Tecoma, The Patch, Tremont, Upper Ferntree Gully and Upwey.

The representatives were selected following a public expression of interest and comprehensive assessment process and members are committed to progressing community-led social, economic and environmental recovery.

Meetings for the Hills RCRC are held the fourth Thursday of each month.
