Have your say to help de­velop lo­cal econ­omy

Mansfield Courier - - News -

MANS­FIELD Shire Coun­cil is cur­rently seek­ing com­mu­nity and in­dus­try in­put to­wards the devel­op­ment of the Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment Strat­egy. “Com­mu­nity and business work­shops will as­sist in un­der­stand­ing key chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties for our econ­omy,” Mayor Marg At­t­ley said.

“In light of the re­cent fire events and im­pacts of State Gov­ern­ment leg­is­la­tion, we are all keenly fo­cused on com­mu­nity re­sources and our lo­cal eco­nomic re­silience.”

Strat­egy prepa­ra­tion will in­clude an in depth stake­holder and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment pro­gram that in­volves a range of ac­tiv­i­ties to en­sure every­one has a chance to par­tic­i­pate with up­com­ing lo­cal com­mu­nity and business work­shops, as well as pro­vid­ing their in­put through com­mu­nity and business sur­veys.

Com­mu­nity work­shops will be held at the meet­ing room in the Mans­field Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre on:

6pm un­til 7:30pm; and

7am un­til 8:30am;

A business/in­dus­try, stake­holder work­shop will be held on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 29, from 3pm un­til 4:30pm, in the meet­ing room at the Mans­field Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers, busi­nesses and stake­hold­ers wish­ing to par­tic­i­pate in the en­gage­ment pro­gram work­shops for the project are en­cour­aged to visit www. mans­field.vic.gov.au/events to reg­is­ter your par­tic­i­pa­tion.
