The idea for IMPA emerged from a series of discussions between founding members Gerry McLoughlin and Dr Darragh O'Brien about the potential of an organized, funded group to represent community interests in the planning process. The idea quickly grew and was widely embraced by community groups from all over Melbourne's inner suburbs. IMPA was incorporated in January 2104 and is now led by an elected, voluntary Executive Group.
