City of Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin shares what sets Stirling apart.
With beaches, bushland, inner-city suburbs and a growing multicultural community, the City of Stirling is one of the most diverse Local Government areas in Western Australia – it’s also the largest in terms of population size with over 220,000 residents.
City of Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin was first elected in 2015 and is a big advocate for making the most of everything the City has to offer.
An avid surf life saver, it’s no secret his favourite spot is the coast, which spans from Scarborough to Watermans Bay. “We've got six and a half kilometres of fantastic pristine coastline and I spend every day there” he says.
“I think some of the fantastic things we run in the City is all of our markets from Inglewood through Mirrabooka, Balga, Main Street and Scarborough.”
Mark feels that being a Mayor in a Local Government is a great way to make positive change at a grassroots level, and what he likes most about working for the City is how passionate and engaged the local community are; “What I love about the Stirling community is they are so activated - they want to be involved and consulted… it's a really great opportunity for us to connect with them and make sure that we're achieving what the community want us to achieve” he says.
