"To create a community which cares about its people, its environment and its opportunities to live, work and prosper in a safe and sustainable way".

MADCOW Objectives:

  • to be a true representative body of the community of Monbulk and district

  • to liaise with other community groups, Council, other relevant government departments and organisations to represent the needs and wants of the community

MADCOW was founded back in the early 2000's by a group of local residents under the guidance of Yarra Ranges Shire Councillor Alan Fincher, the local Victoria Police Sergeant.
