Oct 29, 2020 · My education, training and business experience have equipped me with the tools necessary to give back to the Village, representing my neighbors, to make a positive difference in the town’s future.” Tabitha Neimann. Number of years as resident: Two years Melbourne Village, 13 years in Brevard County You can bask in the sunshine on miles and miles of Melbourne's unspoiled beaches by daylight or, at night, enjoy a romantic moonlit walk, complete with tropical breezes. You’ll find all types of shopping and restaurants in Historic Downtown Melbourne and elsewhere in and near town. Within an easy drive of the Kennedy Space Center, Melbourne also is the home of annual festivals such as the Independent Filmmaker's Festival, Arts Festival, Aviation Day and Oktoberfest. Melbourne's the best city in the world and you'll never hear us say otherwise. However, our Victorian regional towns don't get enough credit. Wheelie bin races, potato festivals, top-notch vanilla slice at every second bakery and some seriously cool art galleries—sometimes it's worth getting out of the big smoke.
