Community group to discuss long term future for Benalla

A community group is being formed to develop a plan for Benalla Rural City for the next 20 years.

Nominations are being invited to fill positions on the Council’s Community Planning Project Steering Committee.

“The Benalla Rural City Community Plan will be an aspirational document which articulates the community’s long term plans for the municipality,” said Mayor Cr Justin King.  “It will outline goals, strategies and future actions for our future.”

The plan will include:
 
 a shared vision for the future
 a community profile outlining the demographic, economic and social conditions in Benalla
 identification of the main trends, opportunities and challenges facing the Rural City
 highlight community assets and what people value about their community.
 

The plan will be an overarching document that informs and guides the four-yearly Council Plan and other strategies.

“The process for developing this plan will need extensive community engagement and a strong sense of ownership by the community,” Cr King said.

“We want people to see this as a plan that has been formed by and for the whole Rural City, and so we are seeking nominations from a broad cross-section of the community.”

He said the process would also rely on strengthening relationships with other key stakeholders such as the State Government, community organisations and local businesses.

Community members wishing to nominate for the Community Planning Project Steering Committee should be actively involved in community life within Benalla Rural City and be willing to meet on a monthly basis.

The committee will begin meeting in August 2015 and complete its task when the plan is launched in June 2016. 

Any person interested in being involved in this exciting new committee can obtain a copy of the committee’s Terms of Reference and an application form from www.benalla.vic.gov.au or he Customer Service Centre at 1 Bridge Street, Benalla.

Nominations close Friday, 3 July, 2015. For more information, please telephone Manager Community Development Jane Archbold on 5760 2600.
