Have you heard of the Towards 2030 initiative that the Mid-Western Regional Council is proposing for the development of Mudgee and surrounding towns?
Interestingly, there are a number of things on the agenda that we think residents of Mudgee, Gulgong, Rylstone and Kandos would like to have their say on… things like:
* What goals and priorities should Council adopt for the next 20 years?
* How would you divide Council’s spending among such categories as roads, health and community services, libraries and cultural facilities, sporting facilities, swimming pools and environment?
* Would you be willing to contribute more in rates per year to get better services and facilities? If so, how much? $50 a year? $100 a year? $150 a year? $200 a year?
* What is your vision for our communities between now and the year 2030?
These are some of the questions that the
Mid-Western Regional Council is seeking feedback on in order to create “Towards 2030“, a Community Strategic Plan that the Council would like to be relevant and in-touch with its community members’ wishes for the area.
According to the Mid-Western Regional Council website, there will be Council staff members dressed in bright orange or pink throughout the Region (times & venues below), ready to take feedback on the Towards 2030 initiative from members of the local communities.
Alternatively, if you can’t make it to one of the stalls mentioned below, there are other ways of making a submission or stating your preferences, which are listed on the Council’s website, but as avid facebook users, our recommendation is putting your thoughts on the Mid Western Region Towards 2030 facebook page (UPDATE: Link no longer active).
“Towards 2030” street stands will operate between 10am and 6pm Thursdays at the following locations:
Thursday 24 March – Mudgee Mouffaridge Mall beside St George Bank
Thursday 31 March – Kandos Town Square
Thursday 7 April – Gulgong supermarket
Thursday 14 April – Rylstone supermarket
Thursday 21 April – Mudgee Mouffaridge Mall beside St George Bank
