Two years ago we came together as a community and you shared your hopes and aspirations about our Shire and the direction you wanted to see it head. From your suggestions and ideas, we formed our ten-year Strategic Community Plan – a roadmap to guide Council and Shire staff and now it is time to check in, to see how we are travelling two years down the road.
On May 11 we will be holding Community Consultation sessions and encourage you to come and see what we have achieved and to give feedback on our priorities, projects and plans.
On display will be progress updates, our achievements to date such as the revitalisation of Morton Terrace and the creation of signature events such as Magic on Moreton. You will also have the opportunity to give your opinion on major local projects such as the recreational jetty, the boat ramp design, and the Surf Beach Revitalisation project.
The Port Denison Foreshore Masterplan, Irwin River Walking Trail Amenity Upgrades Masterplan and the Extended Entry Statement Masterplan, which have been guided by the community will also be available for comment. As will the Shire of Irwin’s Local Planning Strategy that acts as a guide for the progressive development of the Shire over the next 10 to 15 years. This strategy strives to realise the communities desire for sustainable economic growth while maintaining our lifestyle and the natural environment.
The consultation sessions will also feature information about Arrowsmith industry developments with information for local businesses and the community, Shire property options, exploring how we can best utilise our Shire assets to accommodate future growth and the issue of recycling including the costs and benefits.
The sessions will be held at the Irwin Rec Centre – session one will run from 10am to 1pm and session two from 5pm to 8pm.
Council values the opinion of the local community on all of these topics and looks forward to seeing you there.
