Mayor's Column - Wednesday 20 July Mayor's Column - Wednesday 20 July

Creating safe and stimulating recreation spaces for youth has evolved greatly over the years and now involves a lot more than the previous primary focus on the provision of stand-alone skate parks. Holistic youth inclusive public spaces that provide a multitude of opportunities and challenges for a wider demographic of young people are becoming both more prevalent and more needed.

Council is in the preliminary stages of developing the concept design for a Youth Precinct, Regional Play Space and Public Amenities at Nelson Reserve and we want ideas and input from our region’s youth on what should be included in the precinct. 

To initiate the process and generate ideas for the Concept Design, Council will be holding a community engagement drop-in workshop on Monday 25 July 2016 from 4:30pm until 6pm at the Gympie Civic Centre. 

This session will not be a public meeting rather a facilitated workshop to give interested stakeholders the opportunity to find out more about the proposed project and have a say to inform the final design outcome. Attendees are welcome to attend for the whole time or drop in at any time to discuss their ideas with the project team.

More information is available on the Facebook page, ‘Gympie Regional Youth Space’ or by calling Council on 1300 307 800.

Cr. Mick Curran, Mayor
