The Community Planning Project in Marysville is well underway.
Murrindindi Shire Council’s Youth, Recreation and Community Planning Portfolio Councillor, Charlie Bisset said the Maysville Community Planning working group is made up of some 40 residents, business people, farmers and community members from all corners of the township.
“The group has made great strides in just four meetings. They’ve designed their governance framework – that is, how their group will function and stay focused as they move forward with the Community Plan. And they’ve developed a ‘Project Idea Template’ which they’re hoping will inspire community members to submit their ideas for inclusion in the Marysville Community Plan,” Cr Bisset said.
“The projects can be anything. Anything that might make Marysville a better place to live, work and play. I encourage you to get creative and think outside the square. Some of the ideas on the table for discussion at the moment are an off-lead dog park, giving Gould Memorial Drive a bit of a face-lift, beautifying the town by planting a truckload of bulbs and establishing a night market.
