LGA to get immortalised in own edition of ‘Monopoly’

WHO needs Trafalgar Square, Mayfair or Bond Street when you can have Canterbury Road, the Bankstown Bunker or the Georges River National Park.

That’s right, Canterbury Bankstown will be immortalised in its own edition of the game of Monopoly.
Cr Steve Tuntevski has won the support of the council which will now “develop a Canterbury Bankstown Monopoly edition to celebrate, promote and support pride in our City”.
“It’s a unique way to celebrate and promote our City and the sale of the game would cover all production costs,” he said.
“Our City has a heart and history that we should all be proud of. I’d love to have the City of Canterbury Bankstown immortalised on a Monopoly board.
“I have no doubt that a limited edition Canterbury Bankstown Monopoly will be a collector’s item and the gift of choice this Christmas that our residents will want to have in their own home.”
Cr Tuntevski says that while not every amazing place in Canterbury Bankstown can appear on the board, there is an opportunity to engage with the community to seek feedback on what sites, places or things to include that demonstrates what this City has to offer.
He urges all residents to have their say on what sites, local attractions, places or things they would like to see included on the board.
“I understand that this initiative has been very popular when introduced in other cities around the world and believe it will be a great thing our local families will want in their home,” he said.
It is anticipated that the sale of the game will cover the production costs.
