New board is the chalk of the town

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

IT is back to the chalk­board for Vic­to­ria Park, with the Town in­stalling a gi­ant com­mu­nity chalk­board as a way to let res­i­dents and vis­i­tors tell the world what makes them smile.

The Town is invit­ing peo­ple to be cre­ative and to in­ter­act with public spa­ces.

The chalk wall aims to en­cour­age in­clu­sive cre­ativ­ity. Peo­ple are en­cour­aged to snap a selfie of their mes­sage on the board us­ing the Town’s free Wi-Fi.

Town of Vic­to­ria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan said the chalk­board pro­vided peo­ple with an op­porun­tity to share pos­i­tiv­ity and­mu­ni­ d438577 connect with other mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

“All of the ac­tiv­i­ties and projects we have been im­ple­ment­ing to ac­ti­vate Al­bany High­way are cre­at­ing a vi­brant, in­ter­est­ing place where peo­ple feel con­nected to their public spa­ces and spend more time in them, which fits per­fectly with the Town’s vi­sion,” he said.
