The new Autumn Place Community Hub in Doveton is opening soon, and the City of Casey wants to hear from residents what they’d like to see and do at their new community space.
Council invites the community to have their say, via an online survey or by visiting a pop-up session to chat to Council officers, to help shape the future programs, events and services for the community hub.
Opening at the end of January, the community hub includes a new kindergarten with two rooms and outdoor play spaces, two Maternal and Child Health consulting rooms and a large multipurpose community room with a kitchen and courtyard.
City of Casey Mayor Cr Amanda Stapledon said Council is excited to soon open this new facility to the community.
“Council wants to ensure this new community space meets the needs and expectations of local residents,” she said.
“That’s why we’d like to hear from the community what programs, activities and events they’d like to see or participate in at the community hub in the future.
“The community hub has delivered a new and improved kindergarten and MCH consulting suites, along with community spaces where Council and other organisations can run programs and activities and deliver services for the Doveton and surrounding community.
“The project was undertaken to create a dedicated hub where the community can meet, learn, play, socialise, connect and express their culture. I’d encourage resident to fill out the survey, so we can ensure this facility is valued and well-utilised by all those in the community.”
To fill out the survey, which is open until 17 February 2019, visit Casey Conversations.
Residents can also have their say by visiting one of these pop-up engagement sessions and chatting with a Council officer:
