MS CODY (Murrumbidgee) (10.58): I move:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes that:

(a) Canberra is growing by 7 000 people a year, and is estimated to become a city of half a million people by 2030;

(b) major international companies and organisations are increasingly recognising Canberra is a good place to base their Australasian operations, bringing with them highly paid and secure jobs; and

(c) a growing Canberra needs ongoing, long term strategic investment in services and infrastructure to help keep Canberrans moving and productive, as well as protecting this city's enviable lifestyle;

(2) further notes that the ACT Government is growing core social and economic services for a growing city, including:

(a) investing $3 billion over the next four years on key capital projects that will help Canberrans move around our city more quickly and access more high quality services locally;

(b) delivering green bin services to Weston Creek, Kambah and Tuggeranong, and rolling out the popular time and cost-saving municipal service to the remainder of Canberra by 2019;
