Development Committee calls for community response.July 30, 2014 3:50am
Kyabram Development Committee is urging the community to give feedback on the proposed Kyabram Road Connection after a lacklustre response to it’s call for support.
KDC chairman Vince Curtis said he believed the idea was supported by the majority of the community, but that people had too much of a wait-and-see attitude.
‘‘This has happened in the past before,’’ he said.
‘‘We have put our phone number up and asked people to give feedback, but sometimes it takes that little bit more for people to get involved, it’s something I have learnt the hard way over the journey.
‘‘This is a similar style response we initially got to the community bank proposal.
‘‘All conversations have to start somewhere and I think you will find that there is a lot of interest in it, but people just sort of think that it’s someone else’s job.’’
