Project pipeline now available to public
LOCAL residents and community groups are now able to see where projects important to them are positioned into the future after Alpine Shire Council launched a new online tool.
Council’s director assets Will Jeremy said the Project Pipeline shows the indicative timing for delivery of projects between 2019/20 and 2033.
“The Project Pipeline shows projects which have been raised by council and the community, and are listed for possible delivery further into the future,” he said.
“We want to emphasise that projects in the Project Pipeline are not locked in – every pro- ject is subject to council support and available budget for the relevant financial year.
“The pipeline displays indicative timing for delivery, but is a useful tool for communities to see where their project may be sitting in the mid to long term.”
Mr Jeremy said projects ranged from the day-to-day works, such as footpath construction and road sealing, to the very ambitious.
“It also pays to mention that some of the longer-term projects are aspirational and would need large amounts of external funding to go ahead,” he said.
“Council regularly reviews community priorities for pro- jects and we understand that priorities change over time.”
In July council launched its Project Dashboard which tracks the progress of capital works projects across the shire.
The dashboard was designed in-house and is one of the first of its kind in local government.
It shows the projects council is currently delivering and how works are progressing before being updated at the completion of each stage.
