Cr Tim Heenan has lived in Mt Evelyn for more than 34 years and has two adult children and five young grandchildren. He keeps in regular contact with his community and is always up-to-date with the issues, needs and aspirations of residents. Tim has formed strong connections and wide ranging networks, from being a long time resident of the area and as the community representative on Council.
Tim is a strong advocate for caring for the environment and this is what attracted him to making this area his home. He enjoys walking the bush trails and is interested in sustainable living and development. He loves the strong sense of community, and the local businesses that are prepared to make a go of it to ensure that collectively the community looks out for each other and prospers.
Tim is also a strong supporter for raising awareness and the need for more homelessness support services in the Yarra Ranges. He has worked closely with organisations such as Holy Fools and has been involved with Homelessness Week by sleeping rough for approximately 160 nights over the last ten years.
