During February, March and April, Gunnedah Shire Council is rolling out a series of community engagement activities that will assist in the update for the Community Strategic Plan (CSP).
Four years ago Council worked alongside the local community to develop our Community Strategic Plan. Since then, our community has seen many changes and it’s time to take stock, see if we’re on the right track and update the plan.
To get started, we want to hear from all community members so that we can understand your priorities and ideas for the Gunnedah Shire, now and into the future.
The plan brings community groups and other tiers of Government together, so we’re all working toward a shared vision for the future of our community.
WAYS TO BE INVOLVED
Keep an eye out in your mailbox over the next couple of weeks- you will be receiving a ‘Postcard to the Mayor’. This is a place to put some of your big ideas for the Gunnedah Shire. Let us know what you like best about living here, and what you’d like to see improve. Its reply paid, so just post it back. If snail mail isn’t your thing- there is an online version of the survey located here: www.surveymonkey.com/r/XXXYBQR
Community Vision Board
On Saturday 4th March and Wednesday 8th March head down to the Smithurst Theatre court yard and you’ll find a huge community vision board. You can get involved by adding your own stamp and contributing to a collection of ideas for the future in Gunnedah.
Youth Video Project
Our Youth Development Officer and Youth Council are leading the charge with a Youth based video project. During the week of the 6-10th March, they will have a videographer in tow and will be visiting schools and approaching young people around town to ask them what we should prioritise for the future. There will also be a community wide video being filmed at the same time. If you’re a young person aged 12-25 and would like to be involved in the production, please get in contact with our Youth Development officer by calling 67402100.
