The Toolleen community discussed a desire for a community plan over pizza on December 9.By Bronwyn Beyers
The Toolleen community got together on December 9 for a free community family pizza night at the Toolleen Hotel.
Toolleen does not have a community plan and Campaspe Shire decided it was time to create one with the assistance of the area’s residents.
A community plan identifies a community’s vision for the future and the actions that can help achieve that vision, and is the primary framework used by a council to determine where grants and funding are best allocated.
Toolleen residents, property owners and business operators gathered at the Toolleen Hotel to enjoy a beer and pizza, and discuss with each other and Campaspe Shire councillor Leigh Wilson their ideas and visions for the community’s future.
Those who were unable to attend can still complete a survey, available from Jim www.toolleen.vic.au or contact Campaspe Shire community planning officer Jenny Williams on 5481
