SDRC wants your help on 2030 plan
THE Southern Downs Regional Council is calling for expressions of interest in being a member of a Community Advisory Group to assist with finalising development of the Southern Downs Community Plan 2030.
Membership is open to anyone who lives in the Southern Downs.
The Community Advisory Group will assist with refining the ideas gathered during the first two months of community engagement activities for the 2030 plan and reviewing the draft Plan document.
Nominees will need to have time available for the Group during late October and November 2011. For details on time commitments see www.sd2030.com.au.
“This is the opportunity to help shape the vision for the Southern Downs community through to 2030,” said Sheila Stebbings, Manager Community Services.
“We encourage committed individuals representing various areas of the Region to nominate by 4pm on the 19th of this month,” Ms Stebbings said.
Nominations can be made by filling in the EOI form available from Council offices and libraries or you can download it from the website address above.
Information has been gathered from the community through public launches, workshops and displays in Warwick, Stanthorpe, Killarney, Wallangarra and Leyburn for the last two months.
Two workshops open to the whole community are being held during September to work on the Goals and Directions for this region.
The Goals and Directions workshops are in Stanthorpe on Wednesday, 14 September 2011 from 5:30-8:30pm at the Stanthorpe Civic Centre Supper Room, Marsh St; and in Warwick on Thursday, 15 September 2011 from 5:30-8:30pm at the Slade Campus in Horsman Rd.
