Every five years Councils are required to adopt a Community Plan which identifies and outlines the priorities, issues and direction that each municipality will work to over this time period.
The present plan in Glen Eira is from 2008-13. I would to have preferred that the plan be consulted and formulated in the first half of 2013, that is at the end of the time not 3/4 thru. This would have allowed the full data from the recent census (not yet available) to be used and a new councillor group post election in have input. I wasn't in the majority here.
Saying that the following community consultation forums are still very important in providing residents with the opportunity to have input into the Glen Eira Community plan.
Thursday 16 February 2012 - Glen Huntly, McKinnon and Ormond residents
Ormond Senior Citizens Centre
2 Newham Grove, Ormond
Wednesday 22 February 2012 - Carnegie and Murrumbeena residents
Carnegie Library and Community Centre – Boyd Room
7 Shepparson Avenue, Carnegie
