Help shape shire’s future

People encouraged to give input to develop Campaspe’s 20-year plan

Community leaders gathered to talk about Kyabram with Campaspe Shire Council representatives last week.

Kyabram has an opportunity to shape its vision of the future with the creation of a 20-year plan for the Campaspe Shire.

The shire announced last week it would seek community input to develop a strategic plan for the region’s future.

Workshops, online surveys, activities and competitions will be organised to gain community feedback.

Kyabram Community Planning Group chairman Peter Nelson said the town should embrace council’s 20-year approach.

‘‘I would suggest that we dovetail with their philosophies and match them with ours,’’ he said.

‘‘We have talked before about what we might do in Kyabram and created a vision, such as in the short term the completion of the walking track and in the long term the indoor aquatic centre. Whatever we envisage, and there are plenty of ideas, we need to make sure we follow through on them.’’

Mr Nelson said community associations needed to make sure Kyabram was adequately recognised in the council’s 20-year plan.

‘‘Kyabram isn’t too bad of a place at the moment, but it can always be improved,’’ he said.
