25 November 2015: Workshop prompts creative start to community plan process  Printer Friendly


A hands-on workshop on Monday 16 November to brainstorm the possibilities for the future was the starting point for the Community Plan process currently taking place in Benalla Rural City.

The workshop was facilitated by futurist Kieran Murrihy, who encouraged the workshop participants to identify some of the challenges facing the rural city and start to share their ideas about how to address them.

Areas covered included the environment, climate change, an ageing demographic, education, supporting existing business and attracting new ones, and telecommunications infrastructure.

The workshop was attended by 50 people, including members of the Community Plan Project Steering Committee and other community representatives from across different sectors, with strong representation from rural areas.

“It was exciting to have so many passionate people together sharing some very exciting ideas,” said Cr Barbara Alexander, Chair of the Community Plan Project Steering Committee.

“The best ideas for our community’s future will come from the community itself, so I am confident that this process which is led by the community will result in the development of a meaningful and inspiring plan,” Cr Alexander said.

The development of the Community Plan will be led by Rob Carolane from Twin Prism Consulting and Kate Lumb (Kate Lumb Consulting) and supported by the Community Plan Project Steering Committee and a number of community champions and council officers.
