Issued Friday 9 March 2018
The City of Casey is inviting the community to have its say on the how Council plans to deliver year two of the four year Council Plan.
Each year Council develops an action plan to identify the key priorities that will position the organisation to achieve the goals and aspirations of the community, ultimately striving to achieve the vision of creating Australia’s most liveable city.
The Draft Council Action Plan 2018-19 has been prepared based on the feedback received in 2016 from over 3,000 residents as part of the development of the Council Plan 2017-21. This was followed by the People’s Panel in 2017 who further refined where the community wants to see the City of Casey in 2021.
City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett said we have drafted the Council Action Plan 2018-19 based on community input and now we want the community to view what has been proposed to let us know what they think and why.
“As a Council we are committed to having open, honest and transparent conversations with the community about plans for the future. As part of this process we want to regularly check in with the community through opportunities such as this to ensure that we are on the right track”, said the Mayor.“All feedback received will be considered in preparing the final draft to be presented to Council in April. After this time the community will have another opportunity to view the updated draft and provide additional feedback during May.
“Council’s first ever Community Taskforce will also be consulted on the Draft Council Action Plan at their first workshop being held at the end of March. “As a little incentive everyone who completes the survey will go into the draw to win one of five $80 Westfield gift vouchers”.
Residents have until 28 March 2018 to have their say and can contribute online at caseyconversations.com.au/yourcity or attend one of the pop-ups being held around the city over the next few weeks.
