Ac­tive youth space

Seymour Telegraph - - YOUR LOCAL DINING GUIDE - A multi-ac­tiv­ity precinct for youth has been built in Avenel, and now Strath­bo­gie Shire Coun­cil wants your feed­back on con­cept de­signs for a youth space in Nagam­bie.

The com­mu­nity’s feed­back on the early con­cept de­signs for an ac­tive youth hub in Nagam­bie is be­ing sought by Strath­bo­gie Shire Coun­cil.

Nagam­bie Cro­quet Club has re­cently dis­banded and with the space now va­cant, coun­cil has started ex­plor­ing the idea of hav­ing an ac­tive youth space at this lo­ca­tion, with four de­signs de­vel­oped for ini­tial feed­back.

The de­signs in­cor­po­rate a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties such as a skate park, bas­ket­ball half court and so­cial ar­eas.

A com­mu­nity drop-in ses­sion is be­ing held tonight from 6 pm to 7 pm at the old cro­quet club (26 Fil­son St).

Coun­cil in­vites res­i­dents to go along for the com­mu­nity bar­be­cue to view the de­signs, vote on their favourite op­tion and pro­vide feed­back to coun­cil.

An on­line fo­rum and poll is also be­ing con­ducted — all you need to do is click the ‘Have Your Say’ but­ton at the web­site www.strath­bo­gie. vic.gov.au

Al­ter­na­tively, drop in to view the de­signs and pro­vide writ­ten feed­back to coun­cil in per­son or via email at info@strath­bo­gie. vic.gov.au

Strath­bo­gie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said a youth space is some­thing the com­mu­nity have been hop­ing to see for some time.

‘‘We have lis­tened to the needs of our com­mu­nity and have started ex­plor­ing the idea of hav­ing an ac­tive hub for our lo­cal youth,’’ Cr McClaren said.

Cr McClaren said the youth hub was in early con­cept stages, and cur­rently had no project plan, bud­get or time­lines in place.

‘‘We think this is a great op­por­tu­nity to gauge pref­er­ences and get feed­back from our com­mu­nity at the start of this process, which will as­sist in in­form­ing fu­ture plan­ning, and will be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion, along with a num­ber of other fac­tors in­clud­ing fi­nan­cial, reg­u­la­tory and safety,’’ Cr McClaren said.

‘‘We want to hear from the com­mu­nity, par­tic­u­larly youth, about their pref­er­ences and ideas on our ini­tial con­cept de­signs and what they would like to see in­cor­po­rated in this space.’’
