LABOR: JANELLE MCINTOSH
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.
