Be Part of the Dialogue at Community Conversations
Scenic Rim residents are invited to be part of the dialogue when Mayor Greg Christensen presents a series of Community Conversations throughout the region next month.
Beaudesert, Tamborine Mountain, Beechmont, Boonah and Canungra will be venues for the community forums which will run from Tuesday February 6 to Thursday February 15.
Mayor Greg Christensen urged Scenic Rim residents not to miss an important opportunity to learn more about Council's role in the community and to have their say to help guide future planning.
"These Community Conversations aim to provide a clearer picture of how we operate and what informs our decision making," he said.
"For those who have not already done so, it's also a great opportunity to meet their local Councillors, as well as to provide feedback on what they see as priorities within the scope of our operations.
"Our constant challenge is to balance financial sustainability against community demand for services as the decisions we make today will have an impact, not only on this year's Budget or the next, but also will represent a legacy for future generations."
Also up for discussion at the Community Conversations is the current review of the Scenic Rim Community Plan 2011-2026, which was developed as a shared vision between Council and residents of the Scenic Rim.
"As we're now at the mid-point in our 15-year journey, it's worthwhile to pause and reflect on how we are travelling and to update some areas of the plan to take us forward," Cr Christensen said.
Community Conversations will run from 6pm to 8pm (doors opening at 5.30pm) at the following venues on these dates:
- The Centre, Beaudesert, on Tuesday 6 February
- Vonda Youngman Community Centre, Tamborine Mountain, Thursday 8 February
- Hall on Graceleigh, Beechmont, Monday 12 February
- Boonah Cultural Centre, Tuesday 13 February
- Canungra State School, Canungra, Thursday 15 February
