Get involved and have your say on a number of key projects

Mitchell Shire Council values the local knowledge, expertise and opinions of our community and during July we have a range of key projects we’d love to get your input on.

There are currently four major projects Council is keen to get the community’s feedback on:

BROADFORD PRECINCT PUBLIC SAFETY SURVEY We're applying for a grant to help improve public safety around Broadford Living and Learning Centre, the police station, Youth Room and skate park.

Have your say on the proposed safety measures, including the installation of CCTV and public safety lighting in the area, as well as any other suggestions you may have to improve safety and to increase perceptions of safety. The survey closes on Sunday 15 July.

WALLAN PLAYSPACE UPGRADES We’re upgrading three local playgrounds in Roulston Way, Lisa Place and Coffey Drive thanks to funding from the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund. We’ve developed some concept designs and we want your feedback. Have your say by Friday 20 July.

TOURISM AND VISITOR ECONOMY PLAN We’re developing a new Tourism and Visitor Economy Plan, which will play a pivotal role in coming up with initiatives for Council, businesses and the wider community to undertake to support further growth in visitation to Mitchell. Take the survey before Sunday 22 July.

SEYMOUR RESOURCE RECOVERY CENTRE We’re about to design a new Resource Recovery Centre proposed to be located at Mitchell Landfill in Hilldene, near Seymour, and we want your ideas on what services you’d like to see at the new centre. Take the survey or come to a drop-in session at Chittick Park Community Place on Thursday 19 July (4.30-7.30pm) or Saturday 21 July (10am-1.30pm).

If you’d like to keep up to date with Council’s consultation opportunities, then why not join the Community Voice Panel.

Mitchell Shire Mayor Rhonda Sanderson said signing up was simple.

“The Community Voice Panel is a great way for our community to get notified when we have a project or plan out for public consultation,” Cr Sanderson said.

“Signing up is quick and easy and anyone can join, whether you live, work or visit Mitchell – we’d love to hear from you.”
