The Tatura Community Plan was established two years ago to work with Greater Shepparton City Council on priorities for the town.November 26, 2012 2:12pm
Two years on from its beginnings, the Tatura Community Plan Steering Committee has plenty to be proud of. It came together to implement the ideas outlined in the Tatura Community Plan Action Plan.
Ten members representing many sectors of the community volunteered to work with Greater Shepparton City Council in what was then a new council process for engaging and completing works in smaller towns within the municipality.
Committee spokesperson Marisa O’Halloran said the committee identified and began work on its top four priorities from the plan, based on committee members votes.
She said reviews of the Mactier Park and Lake Bartlett Master Plans were begun, both of which will be out for final public comment soon.
Improvements to seating and cycling facilities in Hogan St, and support for cycling path upgrades within Tatura and between Tatura and Mooroopna were another priority.
‘‘The updating of all entrance signs into Tatura with ‘The Home of International Dairy Week’ and other key events has been completed,’’ Ms O’Halloran said.
‘‘The committee has also supported the development of the new Private Robert Mactier VC statue at the Private Robert Mactier VC Memorial Park (Mactier Park).
‘‘A proposal for drinking fountains and additional recycle bins has been submitted to council and is undergoing due process.’’
Ms O’Halloran said there were now 13 committee members who also represent groups such as Rotary, Landcare, sports clubs, Senior Citizens, RSL, Transition Tatura and the Tatura Mens Shed.
She said there have also been people involved in particular projects, such as the entrance signs and Private Robert Mactier VC statue.
Committee chair Carl Walters was proud of the committee’s achievements over the past two years.
‘‘There has been a lot of hard work put in by members, and we are now seeing the results of this work through the approval and implementation of more than $97 000 of actions for Tatura. We are looking forward to re-visiting the Action Plan for new projects to implement over the coming year,’’ he said.
