City wants pub­lic feed­back on its vi­sion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE City of Su­bi­aco is giv­ing res­i­dents and vis­i­tors a chance to have their say about Su­bi­aco.

It is invit­ing the pub­lic to give feed­back on the its progress and vi­sion as part of the Think2030 strate­gic com­mu­nity plan re­view.

The re­view was first launched in 2011, with 4000 peo­ple par­tic­i­pat­ing in the sur­vey and pro­vid­ing 29,000 ideas, which led to the cre­ation of the City’s strate­gic com­mu­nity plan.

Mayor Heather Hen­der­son said the City was look­ing for as many peo­ple to en­gage with Think2030 in 2016, so that the re­vised plan re­mains rel­e­vant to the com­mu­nity’s val­ues and pri­or­i­ties.

“The City has evolved over the last five years and we want to make sure we are still on track to de­liver pro­grams and projects that re­flect the cur­rent thoughts and needs of the Su­bi­aco com­mu­nity,” she said.

“This could be any­one who works, lives, so­cialises, stud­ies, shops or trav­els through the area.”

City staff will be at­tend­ing com­mu­nity events over the con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod, with post­card sur­veys to col­lect data.

Cr Hen­der­son said it was a chance for peo­ple to show how pas­sion­ate they were about the progress of Su­bi­aco.

“Through my day-to-day in­ter­ac­tions I hear what peo­ple in Su­bi­aco are pas­sion­ate about, what the City means to them and how they would like to see the City in the fu­ture,” she said.

“This con­sul­ta­tion process will help us re­fo­cus on what is im­por­tant to the com­mu­nity and how we’re track­ing as a lo­cal gov­ern­ment.”

All com­ments col­lected dur­ing the pe­riod of con­sul­ta­tion will be an­a­lysed and con­sid­ered to de­velop the re­viewed strate­gic com­mu­nity plan, which will be made avail­able for pub­lic com­ment in April 2017.

Com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion is open un­til Fri­day De­cem­ber 9. To com­plete the sur­vey visit www.think2030.com.au.
