Project Groups



TVAG has created a number of “Project Groups”. If you would like to join any of these groups and assist in the work of the group or just to voice an idea, please contact us.

Graffiti is a big issue in Tecoma and many surrounding townships. TVAG has had discussions with other township groups as to ways in which this problem can be tackled.

We would like to thank the Upwey Township Group for the  generous sharing of their experience.

TVAG has secured some funding with which to tackle this problem in a concerted manner. If you would like to assist in this project, please contact us.


Environmental Information

In response to interest expressed at the recent Community Meeting held by TVAG a project group is proposed that will look at ways to protect and enhance the unique environmental character of Tecoma in order to maintain it’s leafy ambience, which for many residents is the reason for choosing to live in the area.

This group will develop ways to inform the community about native plants and how important they are in providing not only a beautiful environment but also in providing important habitat to native fauna.

Many at the public meeting expressed concerns about the rate of mature tree removal over recent months. This project would examine ways to inform both existing and potential residents of Tecoma about the best ways to live within our beautiful environment without compromising it with regard to fire safety.

An immediate focus will be to create a “new residents information kit”, possibly in consultation with the Shire, that will promote a vision of the Tecoma Township that can enhance the lifestyle of those who come to live here.

Anyone who would like to be involved with this project please contact TVAG .

Community Information Board

This project aims to establish a Community Information Board on Burwood Highway Tecoma that will provide information about our community to both passing tourists and new arrivals in Tecoma.

The idea is to have an Information Board containing the internationally recognised “i” that will attract tourists to stop in Tecoma to get information about places of interest in the area, and visit our local stores.

New residents will also be able to discover information about local clubs, schools and activities.

If you would like to assist in this project, please contact us.

The Shire of Yarra Ranges and the Tecoma Village Action Group invite you to participate in creating a plan for Tecoma’s future

Why should you become involved?

Because it is our community and we should all have a say in its future direction and development. This Vision will build the foundation for future development and will support grant applications and funding opportunities.
