THE story of Cabramatta will soon be mounted on a wall after Fairfield Council agreed to include it in the Dutton Lane redevelopment project.
Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone made the request at a recent ordinary council meeting and was backed by all councillors.
He said the wall would list and highlight significant events that had helped shape Cabramatta's unique history, as well as adding to the changes and upgrades outlined for Cabramatta town centre.
"From its early beginnings when the first settlers arrived, to the bustling food haven it is today, Cabramatta has a rich story to tell," he said.
"There is the opening of the railway station in 1870 that brought business into the area, the settlement of our German, Italian, Maltese, Croatian and Serbian communities during the late 1800s, the amalgamation of Cabramatta/Canley Vale and Fairfield councils into the Municipality of Fairfield in 1948 and the arrival of the Vietnamese, Cambodian and Lao communities in the 1970s."
He said with the story of Cabramatta on the wall, visitors would be able to enjoy the visual storytelling of the suburb and appreciate how the area had developed over the years.
