History of FICRA

The inaugural meeting of Fremantle Inner City Residents Association was held 8 March 1995 at the University of Notre Dame as a response to intoxicated crowds attending a ‘Big Day Out’ at Fremantle Football Oval. The first flyers were distributed to letter boxes by Penny Hislop and Kateryna Longley was the inaugural chair of the committee. The first activity arranged by the Friends of Bathers Beach in association with the Fremantle Inner City Residents Association was also held during 1995. The City of Fremantle provided plants and residents carried seaweed from the shoreline to mulch the area which is now covered with vegetation.

A proposal to introduce a precinct system based on the model introduced by Ted Mack in North Sydney was developed during 1996. FICRA made the transition to become the City Precinct at an annual general meeting held 15 October 1997.

However, the City Precinct failed to attract office bearers at its annual general meeting early in 2002, and the Fremantle Inner City Residents Association was reconstituted, 4 September 2002, with its original objectives.
