Mayor's column - Wednesday 18 May 2016 Mayor's column - Wednesday 18 May 2016

The 2015 Community Satisfaction Benchmarking Survey highlighted that consultation and responding to our community was an area that our residents wanted Council to place greater focus on.

Council is developing a draft Community Development Strategy that will set the vision, programs and activities for community development service delivery for the coming years in the Gympie region. The strategy will guide us to help grow, improve and support the involvement of our community in Council services which result in building a stronger, resilient and cohesive community.

By completing the online survey or attending one of the planned community workshops across the region you will help us identify areas you think Council should be concentrating on.

Council welcomes all suggestions, new ideas and any other comments you would like to make. What current services are important to you in your community? What services would you like to see? What areas of community development do you think Council should be concentrating on? What do you think makes a great community? What would make the Gympie region better?

Please go to to ensure you have the opportunity to provide important feedback so that we can work together to make our region a great place to live, work and play.

Following the community workshops, a draft strategy will be prepared and released for public consultation in July/August 2016.

Cr. Mick Curran, Mayor
