GOOD RESPONSE TO COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS

Published on Friday, 3 June 2022 at 2:43:49 PM

The Shire of York hosted two community Have Your Say Days on Thursday 26 May and again on Friday 27 May. Nearly 80 community members attended the sessions and contributed their views to a number of important projects that the Shire is seeking input on.

In addition, the engagement team met with York mums at Playgroup, has a stand at the YORKids event and is attending the York Business Association meeting on 20 June.

These engagement sessions are the first in a series of consultations for these projects.  If you were unable to attend these sessions, you can still contribute your views, via the online surveys that are open until late June:

Avon Terrace and Central Business District Revitalisation

We are in the very early stages of planning for a revitalisation of the Central Business District and Avon Terrace. We are seeking community views on what works, what doesn’t, and how we can enhance and revitalise our town centre. Give your views here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CBDYORK

Community Engagement

We have been reviewing our community engagement processes and we would love to hear your views on how best we can get messages to and receive messages from the community. You can complete the short survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LBLTJ2K

Access & Inclusion

The Shire is looking to form an Access & Inclusion Working Group and is seeking community input into the Terms of Reference for the group. The Working Group will provide valuable input with an access and inclusion focus to the Shire’s projects and activities.  Have your say here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/accinc

Other topics discussed were:

York Cemetery

We are seeking input from the community on developments for our current/future cemetery. Please direct your feedback to Laura Appleton, Customer Service Officer 9641 0500 or by email to records@york.wa.gov.au

York Swimming Pool

Watch out for further community engagement opportunities taking place later this year as the project proceeds.

Thank you to the community members who gave their time to attend these sessions.  We have noted that there is a demand for sessions outside of normal work hours to allow others to attend and we will be scheduling further sessions in the next couple of months to continue these conversations.
