The Mudgee community is being invited to help shortlist infrastructure projects for the region to be considered for funding through the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
The state government program was established to help deliver infrastructure projects across regional NSW. Its aim is to ‘improve the lives of residents and enhance the attractiveness of these areas as vibrant places to live and work’.
According to the Mudgee Guardian, member for Dubbo Troy Grant announced that the Mid-Western Regional Council had secured $1.722 million in grant funding through the program.
To ensure the right projects benefit from funding the council is inviting the community to list their top five major projects for the region via an online survey.
A list of projects are available to choose from in the survey, having already been identified as part of community engagement to inform the Towards 2030 Community Plan and annual budget process.
Some of the potential projects in the online survey include walking and tourism trails, amenity improvements and public art investment among others.
Additional projects can be nominated for consideration by completing a separate application form.
The survey is the community’s chance to help get the projects they want off the ground. If you want to have your say then you need to do so before 31 March 2018.
The survey, and further details, can be found on the Mid-Western Council website – http://www.midwestern.nsw.gov.au/community–recreation/stronger-country-community-grants/.
