A mes­sage from your Mayor

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

It’s been an ex­cit­ing num­ber of months with many im­por­tant de­ci­sions be­ing made as a re­sult of com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion. The Town’s Strate­gic Com­mu­nity Plan (SCP) has been en­dorsed and will now be used to guide Coun­cil’s val­ues, vi­sion and mis­sion from now un­til 2032. Our val­ues - proac­tive, in­tegrity, in­no­va­tive, car­ing - will con­tinue to push us be­yond or­di­nary. Our vi­sion - a dy­namic place for ev­ery­one - is fo­cused on the fu­ture and rep­re­sents a source of in­spi­ra­tion. This vi­sion will guide us in striv­ing to en­sure we are Perth’s most em­pow­ered and en­gaged com­mu­nity, we are Perth’s premier place for en­ter­tain­ment and en­trepreneur­ship and we lead in sus­tain­abil­ity. The Town is also com­mit­ted to putting peo­ple first in ur­ban de­sign and safety and en­sur­ing we are in­clu­sive and con­nected with a thriv­ing com­mu­nity. Check out the full SCP on our web­site. In ad­di­tion to the SCP, the So­cial In­fra­struc­ture Plan and the Dis­abil­ity Ac­cess and In­clu­sion Plan have been drafted and are now avail­able for com­mu­nity feed­back. Be sure to visit vicpk.co/SIPDAIP to have a look at these plans and share your com­ments. Our 2017/2018 events cal­en­dar has been con­firmed and I’m pleased to let you know that there are some old favourites mak­ing a re­turn and some ex­cit­ing new events for ev­ery­one to en­joy. Make sure you fol­low us on Face­book, In­sta­gram and Twit­ter so you don’t miss out on any­thing that’s hap­pen­ing. You can also stay in the loop with our monthly Life in the Park e-news­let­ter, via our web­site and of course by pop­ping into our Ad­min­is­tra­tion build­ing, Li­brary or leisure fa­cil­i­ties.

is a new ini­tia­tive on our events cal­en­dar which is based on sus­tain­abil­ity. The event will be de­liv­ered by a dif­fer­ent com­mu­nity group each month aimed at pro­mot­ing pos­i­tive be­hav­iour change in our com­mu­nity. Think plas­tic free liv­ing, back­yard per­ma­cul­ture, in­vest­ing in keep cups, com­post­ing, how to re­duce your car­bon foot­print and you’re get­ting the gist. The first event is sched­uled for 27 Septem­ber, like us on Face­book to make sure you keep up­dated.
