Active youth space
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.’’
