Horsham Talks Community Panel Selection underway

Horsham Rural City Talks is Council’s current strategic planning project to develop the 20-year Community Vision for our municipality.

Council would like to thank residents who registered to be a part of the 40-person Community Panel that will help guide the development of the Vision.

The panel selection process is currently underway and selected panel members will be advised in the coming weeks.

Selected by an independent consultant, the panel members will represent the broad demographics of the community. They will participate in three workshops, with the first starting on 30 May.

The Community Panel is just one way Council is inviting participation in the Horsham Talks project.

We’re hoping that people and groups from across the municipality will host a community conversation to capture their community’s vision for our future.

We’ll give you all the tools and support you need to host a conversation at home, at school, down the pub, at work or at your next meeting. We want to hear from as many people as possible, from Natimuk, Laharum and Pimpinio to Wartook and Jung.

People can also provide their input by completing a short a questionnaire.

To date, 270 survey responses and community conversation submissions have been received. The survey and Community Conversation submissions close on 13 May.
