"Once the storm has passed we encourage everyone to go have a look at the tremendous work that has been done to date."
The opportunity for the community to meet Olympians Anna Meares, who will be presented with Keys to the City, and Sasha Belonogoff will still go ahead with the presentations now being held in the Walter Reid Auditorium at 5.30pm.
