Whether you’re a long-term local, a regular visitor or someone who has recently decided to call our Shire home, Murrindindi Shire Council invites you to share your ideas and opinions on what you think is important for the future of your community, as part of our ‘Shaping Our Future’ Project.
Council’s Mayor Sandice McAulay said when a new council is elected, one of the first priorities is to develop a new Council Plan, including a vision which guides Council’s work over their four-year term.
‘As part of developing the Plan, we want to hear from you, our community, about what you think is most important for us to focus on’, Cr McAulay said.
‘From 10 March until 24 April 2021, Councillors and Council staff will be popping up at community events, markets and in community spaces, including local supermarkets. We’ll be using every opportunity we can to chat to you and gather your ideas and feedback on what you think makes Murrindindi Shire so great and what you think could help make it even better!
‘There will be plenty of ways to get involved, including both a print and online survey. From 10 March, you can fill out the survey by dropping in at one of our pop-up kiosks, visiting our Library and Customer Service Centres in Yea, Alexandra or Kinglake or on our Mobile Service, or on our website here, where you’ll find a link to complete the survey on our brand new online engagement platform, ‘Dindi – In The Loop’ (‘The Loop’).
‘We’re so pleased that the Shaping Our Future Project is the first to feature on this fantastic new platform. The Loop is designed to make it easy for you to stay informed and share your ideas and opinions on key decisions and priority projects that Council is working on. We think this will be a real game changer in terms of how the community can engage with us. Of course, if you are not online, we will still give you lots of ways to stay informed and engaged.
‘Keep an eye out in the local papers, on Council’s website and Facebook page and listen in on UGFM, where we’ll be promoting pop-up kiosk locations and further information on how you can get involved in the Shaping Our Future project’, added Cr McAulay.
