LA­BOR: JANELLE MCIN­TOSH

Monthly Chronicle - - Front Page -

En­gag­ing with the com­mu­nity - Coun­cil has to get out of the Coun­cil Cham­ber and par­tic­i­pate in some real com­mu­nity dis­cus­sions. I'd want to re-com­mence Ward Fo­rums, but also use dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion and video pre­sen­ta­tions to en­cour­age res­i­dents to talk with Coun­cil. De­liver com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties - let's see de­vel­oper's con­tri­bu­tions used to de­liver fa­cil­i­ties like high den­sity de­vel­op­ment ar­eas get­ting 'pocket parks', up­grades for Wal­larobba Arts and Cul­tural Cen­tre, a Se­niors Cen­tre and Child Care Cen­tre for Asquith. Sup­port lo­cal busi­ness - we've had an eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment pro­gram, staff and a re­gional eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment strat­egy - we need that back to sup­port lo­cal busi­nesses.
