What are your hopes, ideas and priorities for Casey’s future? That is what the City of Casey wants to know as part of Casey Next – the biggest community engagement activity ever to be undertaken by Council.
From now until 16 September 2016, Council will be hitting the streets with more than 60 community engagement opportunities asking residents what their vision is for the future of Casey. There will be pop-up stands at community events and locations in every suburb of Casey, as well as targeted workshops for different demographics including children, youth, elderly and culturally diverse communities.
Council wants to hear from as many residents as possible as part of Casey Next. Feedback received from the community will be used to refresh the Council Vision for the future and inform the next four-year Council Plan.
Residents can also share their vision for Casey’s future by answering questions online at the Casey Conversations website until 16 September 2016, or by picking up a postcard from City of Casey Customer Service Centres.
For a list of times and dates that you can come and talk to us see the Casey Conversations website.
Council has recently prepared a Draft Community Engagement Strategy detailing its commitment to engaging with the community to guide and inform decision-making.
Community engagement benefits the community by providing opportunities to participate in decision-making. Community engagement is beneficial to Council as it ensures community priorities and service expectations are understood, provides an evidence base for good decision-making and strengthens democratic governance.
The draft strategy has been informed by market research which took place between December 2015 to February 2016 to determine how residents want to engage with Council and their preferences for participation and a number of engagement expert workshop with staff who have vast experience with engaging with the community.
To view the draft strategy and have your say visit Casey Conversations by 30 August 2016.
