Downer Community Association

The Downer Community Association was formed in 1985 to represent the interests of Downer residents on issues which affect our suburb and surrounding areas. These include local facilities, planning and traffic, development applications, changes to parks and streets, and issues which affect local communities, such as Downer Preschool.

In 1987, The DCA became an incorporated body, which was a key factor in having government agencies take our views seriously, and later, in obtaining the Community Centre lease. Because of the requirements for incorporated bodies, this also provides close scrutiny of financial transactions of the Association.
