The Big Picture – Defining Neighbourhood Character
We’ve been working very hard to ensure this information sharing site is about the big picture for Ballarat East as much as it is about the small battles we fight everyday in our own backyards. We are keen to support a long term sustainable future for Ballarat East, and that means supporting our council to develop a strategic plan that supports our ideas and ideals. Our council can only be as good as the support and contribution they get from us – the residents… well that and at some point we want to be left free to enjoy our home, not having to be at VCAT every five minutes.
With that end in mind we have been working with council, council officers and a small action group of residents to develop a community meeting that might kick start the process. Here’s what you can do:
- sign up to this website (and get your friends and neighbors to sign up as well)
- come to the meeting and tell your friends and neighbors about it:
- Community Meeting – Defining Neighbourhood Character
- Sunday March 18th 2pm to 4pm
- Ballarat Secondary College East Campus
Please invite your family, neighbours and other residents of Ballarat East.
The purpose of the meeting is to develop an action plan to support the personality, character and diversity of Ballarat East into the future. Recently Ballarat East has felt inundated by developments, building, architectural changes. This is the community’s chance to have a say about how we would like our area to look years from now.
This meeting has been initiated by the community of Ballarat East with the support of council. You can register your interest and ask any questions at the website of the Ballarat East Network, an information sharing network online and on facebook ballarateast.net or you can email the BE Network on email@example.com
We sincerely hope you will take the opportunity to create positive change in Ballarat East. It’s good to be involved in the democratic process. Just ask Judy Robinson who organised the petition to reinstate the McKenzie Family to the Eureka Pool Management – she got 1700 signatures – go Judy…
